Country Report
Violence in Thailand's Muslim south escalated at the end of April when over 100 people were killed as militants staged a series of co-ordinated attacks on police stations and security posts. Attacks are a major setback for Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra whose reputation has been badly damaged by the affair. The violence in southern Thailand that started at the beginning of this year took a turn for the worse in late April, when squads of young militants, armed mostly with machetes, stormed police and government posts in a series of co-ordinated raids.
