TRANG -- Residents of a village polluted by two factories producing raw rubber sheets say they have been offered too little compensation for the daily health hazards they face.

The people of Moo 1 village in tambon Na Muang Phet, Sikao district, complain the two nearby factories have discharged polluted water and emitted foul smells, causing hundreds of adults and children to suffer from chronic coughing, lung ailments and asthma for more than two years.
