TWO AUSTRALIANS are being treated in hospital for knife wounds after tuk-tuk thugs set upon a group of tourists on Phuket early today.

Phuket is a popular holiday destination for Australians – direct flights on Strategic from Melbourne and Brisbane began just this week – but the gang knifing is likely to bring to a head concerns about thuggish behavior by local ”mafia” in Patong, a popular west coast destination.

One man was stabbed in the chest and beaten around the head, the other slashed on the right forearm as they and three friends fought back then fled.
