Thai jihad update: 76-year-old Buddhist monk’s throat slit. And the man who did it no doubt thinks he has done a great thing for God. From Reuters, with thanks to Tom:
BANGKOK (Reuters) – Suspected Muslim militants killed a Buddhist monk and two teenage boys and set fire to a temple in Thailand’s restive south, police said on Sunday, in separatist violence that has claimed more than 900 lives.
The militants who attacked the Buddhist temple in the southern Pattani province late on Saturday had slit the 76-year-old monk’s throat, said a police report obtained by Reuters.
The charred bodies of the two teenagers were found in the temple, said the report which did not give details.
A Buddhist farmer was beheaded on Friday, the second decapitation since the Islamic holy month of Ramadan began and 12th in 21 months of unrest in the region.
