Thailand stuurt Hmong terug

The first batch of ethnic Hmong people are guarded by the military on a truck on the way out of the Ban Huay Nam Khao camp to the border with Laos, in Phetchabun province about 416 km (258 miles) northeast of Bangkok December 28, 2009. Thailand's repatriation of thousands of ethnic Hmong asylum-seekers to Laos was imminent despite international objections that they could face persecution back home, a senior army officer said on Sunday.
