NEARLY 50 Australians were murdered overseas last year according to a new report which again named Thailand as the most dangerous holiday destination.

 

Almost 1700 Australian tourists died while abroad, including 203 in Thailand, 126 in the Philippines and 107 in Indonesia.

 

New figures show 446 tourists lost their lives due to illness, 211 died in accidents and 68 died by suicide, while another 340 Australians died of natural causes.

 

Forty-nine people were murdered. The Consular State of Play report also revealed that the number of Australians who were the victims of assault overseas had soared 39 per cent in the last five years.

Fist it was 50 Aussies murdered overseas, then later in the article it was 49 Aussies murdered, the Consular state of play stated, but the article fails to clarify if it was in Thailand or an accumulation of other countries, I would suggest the latter.

 

Poor reporting in my opinion.

Overseas......so the 50 or 49  were not all in Thailand....just that Thailand is the most dangerous for the Australian. The higher percentage I suppose.....very badly written.
