The Nation/ANN | Saturday, May 10, 2014

HAT YAI, Thailand - Police beefed up security in Songkhla yesterday following blasts in Hat Yai on Monday, by dispatching more officers to join soldiers and administrative officials at checkpoints to intercept illegal items and to screen vehicles going into Hat Yai city.

The chief of Songkhla Police, Major-General Ekkaphob Prasitwattanachai, urged members of the public to cooperate with security officials at Hat Yai because there would be more temporary checkpoints and officials may ask to search them.

He said security would also be boosted in Sadao and Muang districts, which were believed to be insurgent targets.
