Thai authorities have been asked to investigate the murder of two Indonesian navy personnel who were allegedly taken captive and slain by the crew of a Thai fishing boat last week, diplomatic and industry sources said yesterday. 

Marine police in Songkhla are setting up a task force to probe the murders after the Indonesian embassy in Bangkok was ordered by Jakarta to pursue the matter with the Royal Thai Police.

The embassy said Jakarta has asked Thailand to probe the double murder, which occurred in Indonesian waters, and bring the perpetrators to justice.
