Sport changing Thai inmates lives for better

Prisoners gather in Bangkok for annual "sports behind bars" competition aimed at teaching life skills.

    A sports competition with a difference is underway in Thailand.

    "Sport behind bars" involves prisoners from around the country coming together in the capital Bangkok.

    The initiative aims to provide inmates with skills and attributes they can use on the outside.
