BANGKOK: A leading rights group on Saturday denounced suspected insurgent attacks that have disrupted education in Thailand’s violent south and warned against unlawful revenge by security forces.

Human Rights Watch (HRW) urged the government to ensure the safety of schools after two teachers were killed in Narathiwat province on Tuesday, which sparked the suspension of classes in state-run schools for three days.

“Insurgent attacks on teachers have created the most serious disruption to education in the south,” said Sophie Richardson, acting Asia director at HRW. “These grave crimes cannot be justified in any circumstances.”
