BBC corroborates Thai human rights abuse allegation

I see that the BBC now collaborates the most fearful of some disturbing allegations which I blogged about yesterday:
"Thai soldiers tied up our hands and then put us in boats without engines. These were towed into the high sea by motorised boats and left to drift," said Zaw Win, a survivor rescued by Indian coast guards off the coast of Little Andamans after drifting for 12 days.

"We were without food and water. The Thai soldiers clearly wanted us to die on the boats," Win told the BBC by telephone from a camp where survivors are being cared for.
Hat tip to Fonzi at Thailand Jumped the Shark. Fonzi notes that the local Thai media still has not covered this story.
