BANGKOK, Aug 23 — Thailand’s Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has not yet concluded its investigation into the deaths of 91 people, including the Italian photographer and Japanese cameraman, killed during the ten-week street protests by anti-government Red Shirt protesters.

Pol Col Narat Sawettanant, deputy DSI chief and spokesman, told a news conference on Monday that the agency has received 266 cases including 145 terrorism-related cases and has conducted 42 autopsies including that of the slain Italian photographer and the Japanese cameraman.

Regarding the deaths of the two foreign journalists, Pol Col Narat explained that the DSI currently could not determine who shot either of them, the overall causes and details of their deaths. The autopsies identified only that they were shot by high-velocity bullets from the front through the back.
