A dead Bryde’s whale weighs about 11 tons was washed ashore in Phra Samut Chedi district of Samut Prakarn province.
The whale is 11 metres long. It was found by residents near the Phra Chulachomklao fortress shore.

It was not known the cause of death of this sea mammal but locals said they spotted the dead whale in the sea a few days earlier but could do nothing because of its size.

It was until yesterday that the dead whale was washed ashore.

Officials from the Marine Resources Research and Development Centre in the Gulf of Thailand have inspected the body of the whale but could not find a cause yet.

They have collected samples of its skin tissues and fin for laboratory test before the exact cause could be established.

But an assistant village headman Wisanu Kengsamut said local people have sighted the dead whale on Sunday at the shore near the navy prison.

He went to inspect the whale with the centre officials by boat but could not get near because the area is a shell farming which has lots of poles and therefore could not drag it out.

He said he has to wait until the wind and waves washed it to shore.

But as he noticed the whale was decomposed and might have died two weeks ago.

The team is due back in Bangkok tomorrow at about 11.15 a.m. via Bangkok Airways.


King Norodom Sihamoni has granted a royal pardon to Thai yellow-shirt activist Veera Somkwamkid, who has been imprisoned in Cambodia since 2010, an assistant to Prime Minister Hun Sen said Tuesday.

The announcement was made during a visit to Cambodia by Thailand’s acting Foreign Minister Sihasak Phuangketkeow, who made the request for the pardon of Mr. Veera on behalf of General Prayuth Chan-ocha, head of the Thai military government.

He [Mr. Somkwamkid] was released earlier today and he will go back home with the delegate with His Excellency Sihasak’s delegation tomorrow,” Mr. Sophalleth added.

Mr. Veera and his colleague Ratree Pipattanapaiboon, both ultra-nationalist Thai activists, were sentenced to eight and six years, respectively, in December 2010 for spying, entering the country illegally, and entering a restricted military area in Banteay Meanchey province.

Ms. Ratree was released by a royal pardon in February 2013 along with 412 other prisoners to mark the cremation of the late King Father Norodom Sihanouk.
