Dense haze produced by Indonesian forest fires has caused some of the worst pollution levels in southern Thailand in a decade, officials said Thursday, delaying flights in an area popular with tourists.Thailand usually avoids the worst effects of Indonesia's fires, which annually blight Malaysia and Singapore.An official at Songkhla's Hat Yai airport said three flights from Bangkok were delayed Thursday because of the haze while another flight from Bangkok to Hat Yai Wednesday evening had to be diverted to Surat Thani.Indonesia earlier this month agreed to accept international help after failing for weeks to douse the fires and last week launched its biggest fire-fighting push yet, with dozens of planes backing up thousands of personnel on the ground.
