An act of utter cowardice

- +

The cold-blooded murder of six innocent civilians, one of them a two-year old boy, in Pattani on the eve of Labour Day by four insurgents is anything but an act of a "war of liberation", as the Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN) separatist group would have the Thai public to believe. 

A man cleans up the shop after the attack on April 30 2013 that left six innocent people  dead, including a two-year-old boy, in Pattani province.

These murders were an act of utter cowardice perpetrated by cowards masquerading as "freedom" or "liberation" fighters. All the victims were killed and then shot again in the head, including the child. It was an insensate, inhuman execution.

There is nothing in this action for these killers, or the "liberation movement" they claim to belong to, to be proud of.
