He was shot as soon as he set foot on the island. A 27-year-old American man was shot dead with arrows by an isolated tribe living on a remote Indian island which does not allow visitors. John Allen Chau paid local fishermen to take him to North Sentinel island, reportedly six days ago (November 15), hoping to encourage the endangered tribesmen to convert to Christianity. When Chau arrived on the island – which is a part of India’s Andaman islands, and one of the most isolated regions in the world – he faced a flurry of arrows from the hostile tribes who live there. His body was spotted by fishermen on November 20.
