I hope there is a peaceful solution too, because right now these events are very depressing:
"The Islamic insurgency in southern Thailand is perhaps the most under-reported in the world. Over 4300 people have been murdered there in the last seven years."
"News.com.au reports that Islamic terrorists shot and killed a Buddhist family of four at their home in the south of Thailand before dumping their bodies in a forest.
The bodies of a 43-year-old man, a 33-year-old woman, their daughter, aged 16, and their 7-year-old son were found in a forest near a railway in insurgency-plagued Yala province on Tuesday.
Major General Chote Chawalwiwat said, “They were the only Buddhist family left in their village, so the militants wanted to terrify and completely drive out Buddhists,” he told AFP.
Islamists have waged a violent campaign in southern Thailand since 2004, leaving more than 4,400 people dead.
The Bangkok Post adds that the killing of the family is just one of a number of violent incidents across the lower South in the past day or two.
A latex collector was shot dead on Monday while riding his motorcycle in Saladae village of Krong Pinang district, Yala, at 9.50pm, and a fruit trader was shot in the leg while closing his shop at a local market in Muang district of the same province at 10.25pm.
