PHUKET: A Chinese couple who lost their passports to a bag snatcher yesterday are en route to their embassy in Bangkok today, with a little help from the Phuket Tourist Police.

After the couple were robbed while walking to a market along the Baan Don-Kok Tanod Road, Thalang Police got in touch with the Tourist Police.

“We contacted the Chinese Embassy for them,” said Sub Lt Jessada Wichien of the Tourist Police.
