Thailand Jihad Update: Jihad against teenage boys and a fruit-trader. “Three killed in Thailand’s south,” from Agence France-Presse, October 17 (thanks to Dumbledoresarmy):
Suspected separatist insurgents have shot dead two teenage boys and a man in Thailand’s Muslim-majority far south, police said.
Two 15-year-old boys were killed and another teenager critically injured in a drive-by shooting in Pattani province on Thursday afternoon, police in the restive region said.
In a separate attack in the same province that evening, a 32-year-old fruit trader was killed in a teashop.
More than 3,400 people have been killed since separatist unrest erupted almost five years ago in the far southern region.
Tensions have simmered since Thailand annexed the mainly ethnic Malay sultanate in 1902.
But that annexation was the result of aggression on the part of that same Malay sultanate. More on that can be found here.
