Five Thai students detained for Hunger Games salute


BANGKOK: Five Thai students were detained on Wednesday after flashing the three-finger salute from The Hunger Games films during a speech by the premier, officials said, in the latest crackdown on opposition to May’s coup. The students brandished the gesture, an unofficial symbol of resistance against the military regime, as Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha delivered a speech on his first official visit to the northeastern province of Khon Kaen, a stronghold of the opposition “Red Shirt” street movement.
