Political canvasser escapes injuries in “politically motivated” shootout

Building damaged, but no one was hit

Therdsak Jiamkijwattana, a political canvasser for PAO presidential candidate Udornphan Chantaraviroj, was shot at three times in what turned into a wild shootout at Chiang Mai Journalists Association building.

There’s nothing usual about Anita Roddick.
