Myanmar national Win Zaw Tun (front) arrives at court for the start of his trial for the murder of two British holidaymakers, on the Thai resort island of Koh Samui on July 8, 2015A Thai policeman described the harrowing moments he discovered the bodies of two British holidaymakers on Koh Tao island as the high-profile trial of two Myanmar migrants charged over their deaths opened Wednesday. Zaw Lin and Win Zaw Tun have both pleaded not guilty to the murder last September of 24-year-old David Miller and the rape and murder of Hannah Witheridge, 23, in a case that has tarnished Thailand's reputation as a tourist haven. The two men, who have been in custody on neighbouring Koh Samui since October, arrived at court in a prison van with their feet shackled.

By Kieran Guilbert LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Sierra Leone's decision to back an international treaty on the rights of women in Africa could lead to a new law banning female genital mutilation (FGM) in a country where the practice is rife, campaigners said on Tuesday. The Ebola-hit country last week became one of the last West African nations to ratify the Maputo Protocol, which addresses a range of issues including FGM, violence against women, child and forced marriage, and women's economic empowerment. The treaty, which was first adopted by Mozambique in July 2003 and has been ratified by 37 African states to date, should compel Sierra Leone to introduce a law banning FGM nationwide, according to rights group Equality Now.
