One week earlier, jihadists purged a Thailand village of its last Buddhist family (by, among other things, shooting a 72 year-old woman in the head). Wonder who was behind this latest, and equally cowardly, attack?
“Buddhist killed in drive-by shooting in Songkhla,” from The Nation, November 11 :

Police said the gunman fired five shots at close range but hit Somchai Somsiriwiriyadej, 30, a native of Songkhla’s Hat Yai, with two bullets. He died on the way to the hospital. The attack took place Monday evening.
