Another teacher killed in South, freshly after schools' reopening

On the first day schools in the deep South reopened yesterday, in the wake of a murder of a principal by insurgents last year, a teacher based in Narathiwat was gunned down last night - the 155th teacher killed through the separatist violence in the predominantly-Muslim region.

Chatsuda Nilsuwan, 32, was shot four times during an ambush in Cho I Rong district, and died at the scene. The victim left the school late because she was doing a

paperwork task, and reportedly did not ask to be escorted by security officials.

In Yala, a female villager, 33, was shot and killed at her home in Yala’s Bannang Sata district in a drive-by shooting. Police theorised that the murder was the work of
insurgents but were compiling more evidence to back it up.
