Police also said they had detained two men who were seen on CCTV at the time and around the area of the murders, Thairath newspaper reported.

Police had earlier questioned migrant workers and a travelling companion of the murdered man, before DNA testing cleared them of involvement.

The murdered tourists, one man and woman, were found on the beach last week at the island resort of Koh Tao, 350 kilometres south of Bangkok.

The couple, both 24, suffered extensive injuries to the head and neck.

In the past five years, 13 British tourists have been murdered in Thailand, out of the more than 4 million who visited the country.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
