Bodies found at trafficking camp

Twenty-six bodies exhumed at a mass grave in southern Thailand near a camp with suspected links to human trafficking bear no signs of violent death, police said yesterday, following initial forensic examinations at the site.

Dozens of police and rescue volunteers trekked into the mountains to the jungle camp in Songkhla province and dug up 21 bodies.

Five bodies were retrieved from the camp, which is a few hundred metres from Thailand's border with Malaysia.
