8 Buddhists executed : ( The Religion of Peace in Thailand )

Militants executed eight people and left another seriously injured in a brutal morning ambush on a civilian minibus in Yala province yesterday.

At around 8am the vehicle - carrying commuters from Yala's Betong district to Hat Yai in Songkhla - was forced to stop because of a tree lain across the road in Yaha district, and 10 militants immediately attacked from the adjacent forest.

"I tried to turn the bus around when I saw the tree blocking the road but it was too late because a group of armed men appeared and opened fire," said the driver Abdullarman Kadeh.

"I jumped out and could see the militants shooting the passengers in the head," said Ab-dullarman, who sustained a head injury. The militants found the driver and forced him to lie on the ground but when he prayed for Allah's protection, they realised he was a Muslim and spared his life, police said.
