Aerial view of the flood at Don Muang, Bangkok

Don Muang, home to Bangkok's former international airport, is among the worst-hit areas of the crowded and flood-stricken Southeast Asian metropolis.

The Bangkok Post reports that "The big bag (sandbag) barrier in northern Bangkok has been credited with saving the inner city from flooding, but it has left residents in the outer city under water, prompting protests."

Flood barriers that favor one district at the expense of another have become the focus of "fear and rivalry" according to Reuters.
