(AP) A Thai TV station's decision to cancel a controversial prime-time soap opera has caused an uproar among viewers and critics who are demanding the final episodes be shown.


The outcry came after Channel 3 announced Friday that it would immediately stop airing the action drama Nua Mek 2 due to some inappropriate content.


The station did not give further explanation.


Government officials denied having pressured Channel 3 to terminate the show.


Viewers urged the station to show the remaining episodes, while some called for a boycott of the channel.


Nua Mek 2, which was aired three nights a week, tells the story of corrupted politicians and black magic.


Censorship is heavy-handed on Thai television, with cigarettes and alcohol blurred, but the cancellation of a show before its end is rare.
