The bodies of two British tourists were discovered on this beach in southern Thailand. Police say the 24-year-old man and 23-year-old woman both had serious head wounds. They're speculating that the two were attacked with a hoe found not far from the crime scene. The two British nationals are believed to have traveled separately, and met while in the country. The incident in the Gulf of Thailand, which is a popular diving destination, is more bad news for a country, which is struggling to rebuild its tourism industry, damaged by political turmoil and natural disasters.
