NSC upbeat on truce after 6 days of peace

Paradorn says Ramadan attacks at four-year low

- +

The first six days of the Ramadan fasting period passed without any insurgent violence in the far South, National Security Council secretary-general Paradorn Pattanatabut said yesterday. 

Lt Gen Paradorn said the start of this year's Ramadan, which began last Wednesday, was the best in four years. In the past four Ramadans, an average of five to 11 attacks took place in the same period.

He said violence was particularly rampant during the start and near the end of Ramadan, with a period of relative calm in between.
