Myanmar Embassy In Thailand Under Siege | The Negotiators | Full Episode

Published

on

On Thursday 7th October 1999, five armed rebels took 89 people hostage inside the Myanmar embassy in Bangkok.

At one point the gunmen threatened to start shooting their captives – one every half hour – if their demands related to the results of the 1990 election were not met. However, they soon relaxed their demands and began to release the hostages.

Shortly before the gunmen left the embassy a series of gunshots were heard from within the compound but there are no reports of any casualties.

The Thai government eventually allowed the hostage-takers to flee by helicopter to the border with Myanmar.

The group were understood to be armed with AK-47s, hand grenades and grenade launchers.

This documentary, The Negotiators, shared by CNA Insider is well worth a watch.
