Police find dozens of graves in Thailand jungle camp

Dozens of graves have been found in an abandoned jungle camp in southern Thailand, in an area regularly used by people smugglers.
Thai police said they had also found a sick man and a corpse lying nearby.
A number of bodies have already been exhumed but it is not certain who they are or how they died.
Reports say this remote area on the border with Malaysia is used to smuggle Rohingya Muslims fleeing persecution in Myanmar.
“There are 32 places that look like graves and whether there is one body or several bodies in those graves, we will we have to wait and see,” National police spokesman Lt Gen Prawut Thawornsiri told AFP news agency.
He said that human traffickers were believed to have abandoned the sick man two days ago as they moved people across the border.
