The badly decayed remains of at least three more migrants thought to be from Myanmar or Bangladesh were exhumed Saturday from a mass grave in southern Thailand, as details emerged of the maltreatment endured at the remote people smugglers' camp.Police are investigating more than 20 other apparent graves in the area, which is a few hundred metres (yards) from the border with Malaysia.Two survivors -- men aged 25 and 35 -- told doctors they had spent months at the camp despite falling sick and having little to eat.A rescue worker said one unburied corpse belonged to the recently deceased, seeming to indicate the camp had been in existence for some time.Tens of thousands of migrants from Myanmar, mainly from the Rohingya Muslim minority but also increasingly from Bangladesh, make the dangerous sea crossing to southern Thailand, a well-worn trafficking route often on the way south to Malaysia and beyond.
