Richard Gere won't like this:
"Five people were shot dead and another person was injured in attacks by suspected Islamic militants in Thailand's insurgency-torn southern provinces, according to police.
A 33-year-old Muslim was gunned down in a drive-by shooting late Sunday as he rode a motorcycle to his home in Yala, one of three Muslim-majority provinces bordering Malaysia, police said. [ed- guess they thought he was a Buddhist]
In neighbouring Pattani province, a 46-year-old Buddhist man was also killed in a drive-by shooting late Sunday.
Meanwhile, two Buddhist couples were shot after insurgents opened fire on a home in Songkhla province, near Yala. Three people were killed, and the fourth was seriously injured, police said."
Well, when you're an Islamist that has 72 virgins waiting for you as a reward for committing murder, the beaches of Phuket just lose their appeal.
