wo Canadian sisters found dead in their hotel room on a popular Thai resort island may have been the victims of "serious food poisoning", police said on Sunday. The bodies of Audrey and Noemi Belanger, aged 20 and 26, were found Friday by hotel staff on Phi Phi island in the Andaman Sea, 800 kilometres (500 miles) south of Bangkok, showings signs of having suffered an extreme toxic reaction. "Forensic officials found vomit in the room, blood on their lips and gums and their fingernails and toenails were blue," lieutenant colonel Rat Somboon of Krabi Provincial Police said, adding there were "signs of serious food poisoning." A New Zealand woman died in similar circumstances in Thailand in 2011.
