'As her voice started to tremble, reporters asked if she was crying.

"No, I haven't cried and I won't. I'll be strong to solve this problem for the Thai people," she said.

"What we can do now is to manage it, so that it flows slowly, otherwise everybody will suffer."

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra also told reporters Bangkok was at a critical point. "It seems like we're fighting against the forces of nature, massive floodwater that is causing damage to several of our dykes," she said.'

BANGKOK - Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra appeared tearful yesterday when asked if she had anything to tell Bangkok residents as she continued leading the fight against one of the biggest floods to hit the capital.

Yingluck, blinking back tears, said: "I want people to know that I have good intention and willingness. I will not be disheartened."

When asked if she had been crying often since the floods hit crisis level, Yingluck insisted she had never become emotional.

"Pictures [looking like I've been crying] published earlier were just taken from a different angle. I've never cried because in my position, I need to be strong," she said.

As the reporter continued, asking if the PM was smiling with tears in her eyes, Yingluck laughed.

She admitted that the flood situation in the capital has hit the crisis level.
