American on deadly trip to Indian island: God sheltered me
NEW DELHI (AP) — The young American, paddling his kayak toward the remote Indian island whose people who have long resisted the outside world, believed God was helping him dodge the authorities.
John Allen Chau wrote in notes left with fishermen that "God sheltered me and camouflaged me against the coast guard and the navy." Days later, Chau was killed on North Sentinel Island, which is monitored by Indian ships to ensure outsiders don't intrude.
Police say Chau knew the Sentinelese resisted all contact by outsiders, firing arrows and spears at passing helicopters and killing fishermen who drift onto their shoreline. His notes were reported Thursday in Indian newspapers and confirmed by police.
Police are trying to figure how to recover Chau's body, since even Indian officials have no contact with the islanders.
