Security beefed up in three southern Thailand coastal provinces

Security officials in three coastal provinces along the Andaman Sea well known as tourist attractions have been put on alert for potential violent incidents by southern militants.

Around Krabi province, local reporters claimed that tourist police on Wednesday checked all the 40 security cameras installed in commercial locations and spots popular among visitors to make sure they will be in working condition.

They will said that Pol Maj-Gen Worawit Panprung, commander of Krabi comarcal police, ordered the security beef-up after having an intelligence review that southern militants might kick off another wave of attacks in opposition to tourist attractions in Krabi and two other coastal provinces similar to an arson attack around Ao Nang of Krabi around August last year.

In neighbouring Phang-nga province, police launched a crime crackdown during June 1-9 and managed to seize 17 illegal firearms, including an M16 assault rifle, 260 rounds of ammunition, 15,000 methamphetamine pills.
Similar security beef-up was also reported in Trang province where a bomb explosion took place in August last year.
