Violence in the South

- +

Violence in Thailand’s restive southern provinces has claimed over 5,000 lives since 2004, when Islamist separatists stepped up their campaign against government forces and civilian targets. Despite efforts by the National Reconciliation Commission to negotiate with insurgents, car bombings, drive-by shootings and civilian casualties are a common occurrence, mainly in the southernmost provinces of Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat. So far this year the insurgency has led to 428 deaths and over 1,200 casualties (figures Jan-Oct 2012). Graphic by Suchart Chaovalitvanitchakorn and Prapasri Vasuhirun.
