Six Yao Men Murdered by Thai Police
On reports I went to this village and talked to the widows and other villagers. The Yao headman was called along with other village officials over a very bad road to the government office. On the way home, the truck was stopped and everyone in the truck was shot. Some were running away and were shot so many times that their guts came out, according to one village man who was told to go and pick up the bodies of his friends. I have never witnessed an account of such a brutal murder of people. One of the men shown, standing against a curtain in the photo, he only had one leg.
