                              Police suspect they have found bodies of missing reds

Police will examine the 169 bodies found buried at two temples in Rayong province to determine if they could be the red-shirt protesters said to have gone missing during last year's riots.

Pol Lt-General Santhan Chayanont, commander of the police bureau's Law and Case Office, led a team yesterday to inspect Wat Klong Takwa and Wat Huai Yang of the eastern seaboard's Klaeng district. The police discovered 72 bodies at the first temple and another 97 at the second.

Santhan said he was acting on an order from deputy national police chief General Priewpan Damapong, who is close to the new government.

According to the temples' abbots, the bodies had been brought in by two men from a local charity organisation who told them that the corpses had not been claimed and there were no legal cases related to their deaths. Santhan said the bodies would be exhumed for DNA tests to determine the identities, adding that those involved with their burial would also be questioned.

Not always the land of smiles....

You have to look at the right people and their comments before smiling. Try these two.

Army chief General Prayuth Chan-ocha on Friday urged for calm following the discovery of three mass graves where 169 bodies were buried under suspicious circumstances in Rayong.

The temples' abbots said the bodies were undertood to be 1989 Typhoon Gay victims from Chumphon but police would carry out checks to verify on how and why the bodies had to be transported from the South for burial in the East.

Why would the army chief even be commenting on this?
Why would bodies of people killed 22 years ago in Chumpon suddenly be discovered in Rayong?


Are you smiling yet?
There are none so blind as those who will not see.
