CHIANG RAI: -- Souvenir shops at a Golden Triangle tourist attraction in Chiang Rai were on Thursday morning buried in a landslide triggered by days of heavy rain.

The shops in Chiang Saen district were closed at the time and no one was injured.


Mountain soil, trees and brush buried three shops, blocked the entrances to about 10 more and knocked over four utility poles.


District chief Pinij Kaewjitkongthong called in Pha Mueng Taskforce troops and heavy machinery to clean up the mess.
