Burmese men accused of killing Britons paraded by Thai police

Police in Thailand have paraded two men they say have admitted killing two British tourists who were murdered on a beach last month.

Hannah Witheridge, 23, and David Miller, 24, were found on Koh Tao island on 15 September with severe head injuries.

The two men - identified as Saw Lin and Wai Phyo - face charges of murder, rape and robbery, the country's national police chief, General Somyot Poompanmoung, said.
