Thailand: Moderate Muslims Set Teacher On Fire But Only After Shooting Her In The Head Twice

The 42-year-old woman, who taught English at a rural school, was driving a motorcycle to work in the Mayo district of Pattani province when a gunman on the back of a passing motorbike killed her with two shots to the head, said police Maj. Gen. Pote Suaysuwan.

The assailants then doused her with gasoline and set her body on fire.

“She is apparently a victim of the insurgency, not personal issues, because the suspects scattered flyers with anti-Buddhist messages before they fled,” Pote said. He said police were still searching for the suspects.
