By BI: Were Muslim terrorists behind this attack? Virtually all the terror attacks in Southern Thailand have been carried out by Muslim insurgents. Many of the dead and wounded from the huge explosion were foreign tourists. Bombers are still at large causing concern about more attacks.
In Thailand’s three southern-most provinces, the Islamic insurgency has claimed more than 5,000 Buddhist lives since 2004 as Muslims use violence to force the Thai government to let them have their own Islamic state in southern Thailand.
