Tenth Burmese fisherman murdered

PHUKET TOWN: The number of Burmese fishermen murdered since May 1 has reached double figures with another unidentified body dumped in the notorious “Burmese Cemetery”. The tenth victim was found Monday afternoon in long grass near the entry to the Sang Aroon Mai raft on Sri Sena Rd. Seven of the 10 corpses have been found in this area. The killing followed the pattern for most of the murders: the unidentified man, dressed in a black T-shirt and pants, was stabbed many times in the stomach with what appeared to be a sharpened steel reinforcing bar. Police said he was probably murdered elsewhere about three days ago, and dumped in this area.
