Two Laotians Beheaded in Thailand

The beheaded bodies of a Laotian couple were found in southern Thailand over the weekend and were believed to be the latest victims of Muslim separatist violence, police said Sunday. The bodies of Amkha Duangmala, 26, and his wife, Konmanee Duangmala, 25, were found late Saturday in a hut on a chicken farm in Pattani province, said police commander Col. Suchon Ditbuth. Their heads were found early Sunday about 4 miles away. Police believe Muslim separatists were responsible for the killings but gave no evidence to back up the claim. Violence in southern Thailand began in early 2004 and has claimed more than 860 lives. Most attacks in the area have been drive-by shootings or bombings, though seven beheadings have also been reported. They include the killings of the Laotian couple and a Thai Buddhist man whose beheaded body was found earlier this month. Full Story
