Thai soldiers raid Full Moon Party

THAI soldiers raided a Full Moon Party on the tourist island of Koh Pha Ngan early this morning and arrested a 53-year-old Thai restaurant owner for violating the government ban on organizing parties and celebrations, the Thai-language daily Thai Rath reported.

The soldiers also found marijuana rolls and 147 vials containing moza nitrus oxide, or laughing gas, inside the restaurant.

The local police also face charges for not enforcing the government ban on entertainment activities during the month of October.
