SE Asia Stocks-Thailand's seafood firms fall; Telkom Indonesia up
BANGKOK, June 13 (Reuters) - The Thai index fell on Friday as shares of seafood producers came under selling pressure after a news report on labour practices worried investors while shares of PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia outperformed after treasury share sale.
