In Thailand, A major human trafficking trial has begun at a criminal court in Bangkok.

The court's examination of 500 witnesses in the case against 88 suspects is expected to take up to 2 years, which means verdicts will be even further away.

The investigation and arrests followed the discovery in May of 30 bodies in a grave near a human trafficking camp on a hillside deep in a jungle near the Thailand-Malaysia border.

The case has sparked a global outcry, with the victims reportedly held for ransom in detention camps, facing torture and starvation.
