Surveillance in Narathiwas and “Security Measure” in Yala

Thairath reported early today that Narathiwas province will be givern B 300 million Baht for CCTV networks on major areas like market, roads and shops and communities. The project is said to help authority to track perpetrators.

Meanwhile, Bangkok Post online reported “Enhanced security for southern railways“:

(BangkokPost.com) – Yala Governor Thira Mintrasak said security forces in the three southern border provinces have been assigned to beef up their operations, following a number of unrest events in the region lately.

Mr Thira said police and military personnel and civil servants in the deep South are stepping up their security measures in public areas, including the southern railways. He said more than 2,000 people in Yala are using free third class train services per day, and the route runs from Hat Yai to Sungai Kolok.

Despite the recent insurgent acts, tourists from Malaysia continue to visit Hat Yai district of Songkhla province, as they are confident in the security efforts provided by the Thai authority. According to the Hat Yai Hotels’ Association, about 70 percent of the hotel rooms have been reserved this week. All hotel rooms in Hat Yai are fully booked during the celebration of the Independence Day of Malaysia from August 31 to September 1.

I hope it would not be extreme as having armed officers in every southbound train.
