Thai authorities are trying to clean up a massive, one-kilometer long tangle of trash, officials said Friday, calling it the largest garbage heap to float through the kingdom's waters. The mass of debris was estimated to weigh some 300 tons, said Sopon Thongdee, deputy director of Thailand's Marine and Coastal Resources Department. Authorities believe much of the detritus was carried into the ocean by floods that swept through Thailand's south in January.
