Laos Mekong River Rosewood Smugglers Busted

My novel BACK deals with general lawlessness and things that can go wrong for unsuspecting backpackers on Asian countries’ borders, and I was again reminded of this when I recently read a report about an illegal consignment of Siamese rosewood that had been seized in Nong Khai Province, Thailand.

This illegally-logged wood was being smuggled out to what was called for some reason “a neighbouring country” instead of ‘Laos”, which is where it was heading, right across the Mekong.
