British man shot dead at New Year beach party in Thailand

BANGKOK (AFP) - A 22-year-old British tourist was shot dead as he danced at a New Year party on one of Thailand's most famous islands after a fight between rival Thai gangs erupted on the beach, police said on Tuesday. Mr Stephen Ashton was killed when a Thai man opened fire at a bar on the southern island of Koh Phangan in the early hours of the morning.

Police believe the gunman was aiming at members of a rival gang.
