Former U student to be tried in Thailand for possessing flak jacket

 


BANGKOK — A Thai court on Monday decided to put an American photojournalist on trial for possession of a bulletproof vest and a helmet, which are considered weapons in Thailand.

Hok Chun Anthony Kwan, from Minneapolis, Minnesota, was detained when he was about to board a plane on Aug. 23 after covering the aftermath of a deadly bomb explosion at a shrine in Bangkok. Kwan works for the Hong Kong-based Initium media group.
