Muslim insurgents launch multiple raids in Thai south

Suspected Muslim separatists in southern Thailand launched a wave of more than 30 attacks on Monday, including shootings, bombings and arson, police said, killing one person and injuring more than 10.

Thailand is predominantly Buddhist, but Muslims are the majority in parts of the south, and decades-old resistance to central government rule resurfaced violently in 2004.

Paradorn Pattanathabutr, a security adviser to the prime minister, said the targets included a shopping mall, which was set on fire, and electricity pylons.
