Terror in the south : stress is taking its toll too

In the face of on-going deep-South violence, public health workers, police officers, soldiers and teachers are all suffering from constant stress.

They feel something can happen at any time,” Mental Health Department director general ML Somchai Chakrabhand says.

From January last year to March this year, there have been almost 1,400 incidents involving violence in the region. They have claimed the lives of 735 people and injured 2,763.

Somchai was speaking at a three-day national seminar tackling the crisis at Songkhla. (Nation)

This can be seen as the success for the insurgents. The terror campaign is probably not -just- a matter of body count… but rather a mean to spread fear… leading the thais, officials (“teachers are fleeing“) and civilians… to just leave the battleground.

Eventually, it’s easy to think that… “ethnic cleansing is going on“.
