Police try to identify two bodies

Police try to identify two men whose bodies were recovered from the mountains of Khor Fakkan and Fujairah.

SHARJAH // Police were trying yesterday to identify two men whose bodies were recovered from the mountains of Khor Fakkan and Fujairah. An air rescue team found the second body on Friday, close to where they had found the first 24 hours earlier, Sharjah Police said. Police believe the men were from Bengal and had been travelling together on foot. It is thought they were overcome by heat.

The man found on Friday was thought to have died first as his body was already decomposing, said Abdullah Saleem Al Dhaib, a senior official with the police air wing. "The bodies have been taken to the forensic laboratory to establish the cause of their deaths," he said. ykakande@thenational.ae
