Executives from 40 schools in Pattani's Nong Chik district held an emergency meeting yesterday to work out a new security plan for teachers following the murder of a headmistress on Thursday. 

Two gunmen opened fire with an M16 automatic rifle and a 9mm handgun at Nanthana Kaewchan, the 51-year-old headmistress of Ban Tha Kam Cham School, as she drove home in a car in Nong Chik on Thursday evening.

She was pronounced dead in hospital after succumbing to multiple wounds.
