Aussie stabbed in heart in Phuket

AN AUSTRALIAN woman has been stabbed to death in a suspected bag-snatch gone wrong on the popular holiday island of Phuket in Thailand.

The woman was walking with a friend near their hotel complex in Kata Noi Bay, on Phuket's west coast, about 10.30pm last night when they were attacked by two men who approached them on a motorbike.

The men attempted to steal the handbags of the women and lashed out with a knife when they couldn't grab them.

Ms Yone, a supervisor at the five-star Katathani Phuket Beach Resort where the women were staying, said this morning that one of the women was stabbed in the heart and died soon after.

The other woman suffered a slash wound to her arm and was taken to hospital in Phuket.
