Business drops in Krabi over 'rape' clip

- +

Hotels at Thailand's Krabi beach resort have been hit by a rash of room cancellations after the release of a video airing a Dutch father's outrage over his daughter's assault there, tourism industry sources said Friday. 

The "Evil Man from Krabi" video, which first aired on YouTube on Oct 23, showed a man with a rifle singing about the rape of his 19-year-old daughter in Jul, accusing a Thai tour guide of the crime and demanding justice.

The video had received more than 140,000 hits on the website by Friday and has started to hurt the tourism industry in Krabi, 650 kilometres south of Bangkok.
