Rights group urges Thailand to stop targeting civilians

On September 27, 2011, Amnesty International (AI) urged Thailand to stop the deliberate targeting of civilians by insurgents in Southern Thailand. AI released a report describing the attacks and basically called them war crimes. Nearly 5,000 civilians have been killed in the southern provinces of Thailand as part of an insurgency against the Buddhist Thai state. Thailand has faced continued criticism from the UN for both human trafficking concerns and labor exploration.
