• Myanmar men charged with murder, rape of UK tourists


    BANGKOK: Thai police on Friday charged two Myanmar men with murder and rape after the killing of two British tourists on a southern island last month, in a case that has severely dented the kingdom’s image as a holiday haven. The charges come after police said the undocumented migrant workers had confessed to murdering David Miller, 24, and Hannah Witheridge, 23, whose battered bodies were found on Koh Tao on September 15. The men have been charged with the murder of both Britons – a charge which carries the death penalty – and the gang rape of Witheridge, with police saying that their DNA matched samples taken from her body.
