NARATHIWAT: A cloth banner was found hung from a bridge in Si Sakhon district of this Muslim-dominated southern border province, telling Buddhist Thais to stop hunting in the area, police said.
This was reported to Si Sakhon police on Sunday morning by the headman of Moo 6 village in tambon Si Sakhon.
The banner read "Buddhist Thais are not allowed to hunt in this area for Muslims to make their living", and was hung over a bridge in the adjoining area of Ire Tui and Kalubi villages in tambon Sako.
