'N Korean arms cargo' men charged in Thailand


Five crew members of a plane seized in Bangkok on Saturday have been charged with the illegal possession of weapons.

The five men, four from Kazakhstan and one from Belarus, are to be detained without bail for a further 12 days while investigations continue.

The cargo plane is believed to have left from North Korea and requested a stop in Bangkok to refuel.

Rachel Harvey reports from Bangkok.
