08:07, August 08, 2012

KUNMING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- Sources with China's Ministry of Public Security said Tuesday that Thai police have interrogated a drug lord in China who is suspected of masterminding the murders of 13 Chinese sailors on the Mekong River last year.

Naw Kham, the head of an armed drug gang believed to be associated with the bandits who killed the Chinese sailors on Oct. 5 last year, was arrested on April 25 at an undisclosed location in Laos and was then extradited to China for investigation and a court trial on May 10.

Chinese police said a joint police investigation in China, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand found evidence that Naw Kham, some core members of the gang and a small number of Thai soldiers planned and conducted the murders.

In a July visit to Thailand, Chinese Minister of Public Security Meng Jianzhu invited Thai authorities to cooperate with Chinese police to promptly facilitate putting the suspects on trial.
