Security forces and rescue workers inspect an abandoned camp in a jungle in Thailand's southern Songkhla provinceBy Surapan Boonthanom PADANG BESAR, Thailand (Reuters) - Authorities in Thailand have dug up the bodies of six apparent Rohingya migrants from Myanmar not far from a mass grave found at the weekend, the military said on Wednesday, and U.N. officials called for a regional effort to end human trafficking. The discovery was made at a rubber plantation in Thailand's Songkhla province near its border with Malaysia around 4 km (2.5 miles) from the site where the 26 bodies were found a few days previously. "Villagers living nearby told us the bodies buried here are the bodies of Rohingya migrants from Myanmar from nearby human trafficking camps," Colonel Jatuporn Klampasut, deputy secretary general of the Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC) Region 4, told Reuters. The U.N. refugee agency UNHCR appealed for a joint response to human trafficking by countries in the region, including addressing the root causes that drove people to turn to smugglers in the first place.
