Briton arrested in Thailand after being found with six roasted human foetuses
Independent: Reports says the six foetuses had been covered in gold leaf after being roasted as part of a black magic ritual. Police made the arrest after responding to information they'd received saying that infant corpses were being offered to wealthy clients via a black magic services website. "The bodies are of children between the ages of two and seven months. Some were found covered in gold leaf," Wiwat Kumchumnan, sub-division chief of the police's Children and Women Protection unit, said. For being in possession of the foetuses Chow Hok Kuen could now face a 2,000 baht fine and a year in prison.
