Thai soldiers confront with protesting Thai-Muslim villagers, top, during a protest outside Ingkhayuth military base in Pattani province, southern Thailand Tuesday, May 8, 2007. Hundreds of villagers took part in the protest demanding Thai soldiers to release 24 suspected Muslim militants who are being kept at this base. Since a Muslim rebellion flared in Thailand's three southernmost provinces of Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat in early 2004, near-daily bombings, drive-by shootings and other attacks have killed more than 2,000 people.
