Body of Thai killed in Israel home

The body of a Thai worker killed in a rocket attack in Israel is on its home to Nan province after arriving in Bangkok Monday.

Family members of Narakorn Kittiyoungkul received the body in a coffin of Narakorn Kittiyoungkul at Suvarnabhumi airport and took him into a van immediately back to Pua district.

His sister, Wanpen Ya-ud, said the burial ceremony will be performed in the Hmong tradition at his house starting Tuesday before all members and friends bid farewell to him on Thursday, when the body is scheduled to be put to rest at noon.

Narakorn, 36, was injured by a rocket fired from theGaza strip to southern Israel and died in hospital Wednesday.

Mrs Panchen pleaded for help from government agencies as the family is left with 200,000 baht in debt to repay for expenditure used by Narakorn in the job-recruitment process.

The Labour Ministry gave his family 40,000 baht from a fund set up to help Thai workers overseas.

Winai Luwirote, an inspector-general at the ministry, said the Israeli government and his employer in Israel will give financial support for his family.
