Thai marine police have retrieved the bodies of 22 Myanmar migrant workers in the Andaman Sea, police said Sunday. Acting on information from fishermen, the search party found the corpses floating in the sea off Thailand's Ranong province Saturday. "We do not know why or when the boat or boats sank but we believe that they must have been overloaded and sank in that area about two days ago," said police Lt. Col. Yongyuth Preechachart of the Ranong police station. The 22 bodies, including those of eight women, 10 men and four children were being kept at a Buddhist temple in Ranong for autopsies, he said.
