Thai Government, BRN Agree on Peaceful Ramadan
By: Talk Bangkok
The Thai government and the Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN) have agreed to remain peaceful during the month of Ramadan in the far South of Thailand, reports the Bangkok Post. The period began on July 10th and will continue until August 18th.

The insurgents have agreed to refrain from targeting security forces, civilians and property while Thailand has agreed to withdraw some military troops in exchange for police officers. The Thai Government has also agreed to not take aggressive actions when dealing with security problems and ensure the safety of all civilians without regard to their religion.

Since January 2004 the BRN has fought in the deep South of Thailand to gain control of the region in hopes of separating from the rest of Thailand. In that time, over 5,000 lives have been claimed, including civilians, insurgents, soldiers, police and state officials.
