ABSTRACT
The article reports that Thai prime minister, Thaksin Shinawatra, is coming under intense foreign and domestic pressure to explain the deaths of nearly 80 Muslim protestors, who mostly suffocated after inside police trucks. Escalating violence in Thailand's Muslim-dominated south is largely the result of the premier's heavy handed tactics. The situation in Thailand's restive south deteriorated in late October after 78 Muslims were crushed to deaths while in police custody. Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra made the situation worse when he claimed that the detainees had died because they were weakened by fasting during Ramadan.
