Bangkok’s main airport saw a security breach yesterday; a man on a motorbike was chased by security guards as he rode then ran around INSIDE the secure airport area for 10 minutes. Brandishing a pistol, which proved to be a fake, he slipped through a security gate as it opened to allow a truck to leave, pointed the gun at guards, and attempted to break into a passenger area. Once captured he was found to be carrying his fake gun, a homemade AXE and a pair of scissors. It’s been established that he was high on drugs, but no reason for his actions has been released by police who were still questioning him this morning. Airport authorities told the media that standard operating procedures which are planned for any breach were put into place and there was no need for authorities to fire on the man, and that at no time were any passengers or crew at risk during the incident.
