    American 'killed in India by endangered Andamans tribe' - BBC News

    An American man has been killed by an endangered tribe in India's Andaman and Nicobar islands.
    Fishermen who took the man to North Sentinel island say tribespeople shot him with arrows and left his body on the beach.
    He has been identified as John Allen Chau, a 27 year old from Alabama.
    Contact with the endangered Andaman tribes living in isolation from the world is illegal because of the risks to them from outside disease.

    Local media have reported that Chau may have wanted to meet the tribe to preach Christianity to them.

    They sound like an enlightened bunch. Maybe we should send a few more god-botherers to visit them??

    apparently The Evil British colonised the Andaman Islands and used them as a prison.

    The Japs took over in 1942 & oddly enough were even worse than us.
    Indeed. I visited the Andamans whist working over in India. Direct flights from Calcutta.

    The British built a "Cellular" Prison (in the shape of a large wheel) to house many of the ringleaders of the Indian Mutiny.
    Part of it was later destroyed by an earthquake(IIRC?).

    Went to a Sound and Light Show at the prison where the woes of the poor inmates were "recounted" by a Banyan Tree that had been growing there for generations.

    Twas a bit eerie as we were the only white faces there as the brutal excesses of the prison guards were trotted out.

    However, it was well worth seeing, even if the mosquitoes DID have a field day at Mrs SB's expense largely. Think my skin may have been too tough for them to easily chomp through.

    The British garrisoned themselves on Ross Island which lay about half a mile offshore from Port Blair where the prison stood.

    When the Japs left towards the end of the war the locals never returned, believing it to be haunted or some such other piffle. Very interesting place. Must have been a great posting in its day.

    When I was about five, my big brother and sister taught me this conversational gambit:

    JWs: is your mummy or daddy at home?
    Me: I am ever so sorry but we have just sacrificed them.
