Every little boy and girl wants to grow up to be a politician. Politicians are beloved everywhere in the world. Just kidding. They’re loathed on every corner of the globe and live with the constant fear of assassination.
Thai official Paiboon Pansanit survived this dramatic assassination attempt in which the gunman fired seven rounds at point blank range thanks to bulletproof windows. Lucky guy.
Mr Pansanit was asked afterward if he had any idea who had tried to kill him and replied:
"How would I know? It would be good to know."
