Narathiwat people rally against plan to demolish old market

Some 100 people have rallied at Sri Sakhon Market in Narathiwat's Sri Sakhon district against police plans to demolish the 40-year-old venue so a task force outpost can be built on the land before the end of the month.

The group Thursday performed a prayer for peace and unity among people and state officials, while also displaying a sign that read: "The market has been with us for 40 years. Don't take it from us. If we are affected, you are also affected."
