Flood water threatens Bangkok's commercial heart

Residents in more districts of Bangkok have been warned to evacuate as flood water continues to move south through Thailand.

The water has now reached the outskirts of the inner city, although the authorities are still battling to keep the commercial heart of Bangkok dry.

Two more industrial estates are threatened, as well as the relocated flood emergency headquarters.

More than 500 people have lost their lives as a result of the floods.
