Police in the Mae Sai area of Chiang Rai near the border with Myanmar were alerted after seven corpses were found floating in a reservoir. 
 
The men had been dead for 2-3 days. 
 
It is believed that they were all involved in a gunfight with army personnel on Monday night and were probably injured in the exchange.
 
The bodies were collected and sent for autopsies.

About 20 men were involved in the gunfight on the night of the 24th of February after they were intercepted while carrying 21 sacks through a jungle area. 
 
The sacks were abandoned and found to contain 2,250,000 Ya Ba pills and 14 kilos of crystal meth. 
 
All the men escaped.

Surely the RTA will be along to explain?

Doubtful - 'national security' and all that.

One thing for sure with Thai army and police, no old or out of use by date ammunition laying about there, all are being uses quite gingerly and with enthusiasm in any given chance...

I dont believe it, if they where transporting that much gear and it seems they had intel, if there was that much why did they not just put them under surveillance and track where and who it was going to, I think too mut
