Malaysian Home Minister Datuk Seri Zahid Hamidi has confirmed the discovery of migrants’ mass graves in the northern state of Perlis, which borders Thailand. They were found near the camps, in which illegal migrants had been held for several years.
"Mass graves could have been there for some time, possibly up to five years, I’m shocked," the Star Online quoted the minister.
According to media reports, about 30 graves containing the remains of people were found in human trafficking camp in the south of Thailand. Rescuers found the remains of a man, buried alive.
