“Thai authorities say more than 50 officers have been transferred from their posts over suspected links to human traffickers.

The announcement came after mass graves and more than 30 bodies were found in the south over the past week.

The victims were thought to be migrants from Myanmar and Bangladesh who paid smugglers to get them across Thailand.

“To solve it we must look to the source because we are merely a transit country,” he said.”
