Schools in Narathiwat reopen

- +

All 378 schools in Narathiwat province reopened on Monday after a two-day shutdown in the wake of the shooting of a Thai-Muslim teacher in the southern province last Wednesday. 

The 378 schools reopened after the Confederation of Narathiwat Teachers ordered all schools in the insurgency-plagued province to close down last Thursday over security concerns, a day after the murder of Chonlathee Charoenchol, 51, a teacher at Ban Tanyong School in Bacho district.

Teachers at 27 schools in Bacho district closed classrooms on Thursday and Friday over fears for their safety. They said the attack also terrified the students.
