Thailand: September 6, 2005


Over a hundred Moslem Thais have fled across the border into Malaysia, to escape the growing violence by Islamic terrorists. Although the violence is directed at non-Moslems, the terrorists will threaten Moslems who refuses to support the terrorism. The army and police will also threaten some Moslem communities suspected of supporting the terrorists. The Malay government is worried that continued violence could lead to thousands of refugees crossing the border. The Thai government says that this bunch of refugees contains terrorists looking to set up a safe haven in Malaysia.
