Security in the deep South has been tightened as authorities have warned of possible insurgent attacks on the Tak Bai massacre anniversary next week. 

Deputy Prime Minister Yutthasak Sasiprapa said the warning has been issued as bomb attacks have taken place in the region every Oct 25 for the past five years.
