Armed violence in southern Thailand

Five police officers were ambushed on a road in Thung Yangdaeng District in Pattani Province by suspected separatist Muslim fighters from the Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN) group. This incident follows an explosion at a school in Yala Province the previous day that killed two soldiers and wounded a child. Travellers should be aware that personal security can not be guaranteed in southern Thailand due to frequent armed conflict with separatist groups.
