Hundreds of protesters demonstrated outside Thailand's embassy in Yangon Friday after two Myanmar migrants were sentenced to death by a Thai court for murdering two British backpackers, in a verdict that has sparked anger in their homeland.Thailand has warned its citizens to take care in Myanmar following the verdict.Thai prosecutors and police insist their evidence against the men was rock solid, including DNA found on Witheridge's body. But the defense, which has vowed to appeal the verdict, disputed the forensic evidence, saying it was improperly collected and processed. However the Thai authorities have received an endorsement from Miller's family who backed investigators after the verdict was announced, saying they believed the evidence against the two accused was "overwhelming".The court in Koh Samui also dismissed the defense's torture allegations.
