Prayut orders tight safety amidst new Southern bomb attack

In Reduced of a bombing in Yala province in Southern Thailand, PM Prayut Chan-o-cha has ordered investigators to search out the perpetrators. The attack injured 4 patrolling rangers and two civilians in entrance of a college in Bannang Sata district. This news comes after a government negotiator announced final month that the Thai government would have peace talks with Southern rebels soon.
Prayut has now ordered authorities to tighten safety in each area, particularly round weak spots similar to transport and railway roads within the area. Yala’s governor visited these injured by the bomb in hospital, and of their houses.
Southern Thailand’s separatist group Barisan Revolusi Nasional wishes to establish an autonomous region generally known as Patani Darussalam. It would include Thailand’s Deep South provinces near the Malaysian border of Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat, and Songkhla. The conflict between the Thai authorities, and the Patani Malay people in Southern Thailand, has existed since 1909, when Patani formally turned a part of Thailand.
The Thai government and BRN joined a peace dialogue panel in Phuket in January, however much more progress must be made between the parties. Thai authorities don’t agree to provide the Patani Malay people autonomy, or with the BRN’s want to have an Islamic college system taught within the Malay language..
