"As many as 500 Myanmar labourers in Thailand, many of them unregistered fishermen, are feared dead after killer tsunamis slammed into the kingdom, a rights official said Thursday. Surapong Kongchanthuek, of Thailand's committee on human rights for stateless or displaced people, said that given the high number of migrant workers along Thailand's coast it was probable that hundreds of them were among the thousands of casualties."
