BANGKOK (AFP) - Two infant brothers swept away by rising waters in northern Thailand have become the latest victims of two months of heavy flooding that have left over 150 people dead, authorities said on Saturday. The boys, a nine-month-old and his sibling aged two, are thought to have drowned when a flash flood hit the mountainous Fang district in northern Chiang Mai province late on Friday night, said an official from the disaster prevention and mitigation department. Official departmental figures released on Saturday, which do not include the brothers, put the number of dead at 152, with three people unaccounted for. Flooding has engulfed 57 out of Thailand's 77 provinces in the north, north-east and central regions since it began in July with heavy rains generated by the tail end of the Nock Ten typhoon.
