Thailand arrests 61 Lankan Tamil migrants

BANGKOK (AFP) - Thai authorities have arrested 61 Tamil migrants from Sri Lanka, police said yesterday, in the second such crackdown in recent weeks.
After a tip-off, 114 people were rounded up in the southern province of Songkhla on Thursday, but some were freed because they were able to present valid travel documents.
“The 61 were arrested and charged for overstaying their visas, illegal entry or not going through proper channels,” said Colonel Phutthipong Musikkul, commander of Songkhla immigration police.
