BANGKOK, Oct. 10 (Xinhua) -- A total of 13 Chinese sailors, who were on two ships hijacked by drug traffickers last week, were confirmed dead after investigators found another body on Mekong River in north Thailand's Chiang Rai Province, local authorities said on Monday.

Searchers found the body in nearby Chiang Khong District early on Monday, said Seramsak Seesan, chief of Chiang Rai's Chiang Saen District, where the other bodies were found. The two hijacked Chinese-flagged ships reportedly had 13 crew members.

What is Beijing going to do about it? Are the journalists from the news medias going to ask Mr Hu and Mr Wen that question? The public are interested and wants to know. It is their reponsibility to provide an answer.

This matter must be looked into seriously, and those responsible for the crime brought to justice. No mercy shall be shown. Nobody but nobody should be permitted to kill Chinese with impunity anymore.
