Dishevelled, starving foreigners wandering into the only village in Wang Kelian were a regular sight before the discovery of illegal campsites and mass graves in the nearby hills in 2015.

In May 2015, police discovered 139 graves of human trafficking victims in 28 detention camps deep in the jungle of Perlis near the Thai border.
