Itchy Velvet Beans cause 6 protestors to be hospitalized


BANGKOK, 16 October 2013 – Six protesters at the Urupong intersection have been taken to hospital for treatment after an unidentified person scattered velvet beans on the street where they gathered. 

A handful of the People’s Army against the Thaksin Regime protesters were surprised when they woke up from their naps and found themselves uncontrollably itching all over.

The cause was the notorious velvet beans, known to cause extreme itching, that had been scattered across the streets for over 100 meters. Officials suspected that it was the work of bystanders.

6 people have been admitted to Ramathibodi Hospital for treatment. Bangkok officials have assisted in the cleanup.
