People who fire makeshift rockets or release lanterns that harm aircraft or disrupt aviation will face harsh penalties, the Transport Ministry says. 

Transport permanent secretary Pol Gen Wichean Potephosree yesterday said those found guilty of interfering with aviation or damaging aircraft could face the death penalty or be sentenced to life in prison.
