4 held over mur­der of French vol­un­teers

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Po­lice in­ves­ti­gat­ing the dou­ble mur­der of two French vol­un­teers on an is­land off Mada­gas­car have ar­rested four sus­pects. Au­thor­i­ties ar­rested the four peo­ple, who were at the same night­club as the two vic­tims on Au­gust 21 but have not yet es­tab­lished a firm link to the mur­ders. There is “no doubt” the two vol­un­teers were mur­dered, po­lice said. “We just need to de­ter­mine a mo­tive.” The bodies of the two French cit­i­zens, a man and a woman aged in their 20s, were found on a beach on the re­sort is­land of Ile de Sainte-Marie with head in­juries. They had been vol­un­teer­ing at Ce­ta­mada, a lo­cal en­vi­ron­men­tal non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion work­ing to pro­tect ocean mam­mals.
