10,000 listed in Thai terrorist handbook
Almost 10,000 people, including politicians, school authorities and local religious leaders, have been named as part of an
terrorist insurgency network in a newly launched Thai army handbook. The blacklisted names are listed in two books which are called The Order of Battle.
The first handbook lays out the structure of the
terrorist insurgency network, which includes separatists, the older movements in the region and others linked to the insurgency. The second handbook identifies the names of leaders and their forces in each village and district of the three southernmost provinces and in four districts of Songkhla.
The 500-page book lists 9,692 people as being involved in the network. There are outstanding arrest warrants for 866 of these people.
An army source said, "The number of leaders and their people are increasing by the hundreds, totalling more than 10,000 people now. The handbooks will be updated annually."
