DHAKA (AFP) - Pirates in southeastern Bangladesh are believed to have killed at least 16 fishermen by tying them up and throwing them into the Bay of Bengal to drown, police said Monday. Police said a fishing boat at Kutubdia Island in Cox’s Bazaar resort district recovered three bodies after fishermen found them floating in the sea and at least 13 other bodies had been seen. “They have recovered three bodies with their hands and feet tied with rope and brought them to shore,” local deputy police chief Imran Bhuiyan told AFP. “Fishermen told us they have seen at least 16 bodies floating in the sea,” he added, saying the bodies had no injury marks.
