Buddhist woman shot and burnt alive in the south


A Buddhist woman was shot and burned alive in Thailand’s violence-torn Muslim-majority south yesterday, prompting angry protests in front of visiting army chief Sonthi Boonyaratg­lin. Watcharapo­rn Boonmak, 26, was ambushed by gunmen as she rode her motorcycle through a Muslim village in Yala, one of the three southern provinces roiled by three years of separatist insurgency in which more than 2,000 people have been killed.
