Trio brought back to face trial
Three mainlanders accused of killing a PLA soldier in Guangdong two years ago have been extradited from Thailand, reports said.
The men, who fled to Thailand via Burma in 1998, were arrested this month by Interpol and Thai police, according to yesterday's Guangzhou Daily. Two of the men were named as Pan Xisheng and Lin Hua.
They will face trial for killing the soldier and injuring a further two during a fight in Foshan on August 28, 1998.
The paper said the three soldiers were on their way back to barracks after carrying out flood control work when they were caught up in a row with several Foshan gangsters.
Pan was said to have telephoned for 'helpers', who stabbed one soldier to death. The other soldiers suffered minor injuries.
Seven other suspects have already been arrested.
The paper said Interpol issued a 'red warrant', used for extremely urgent cases, after Chinese police discovered the whereabouts of the men.
