Thailand's new weapon to beat deep-south insurgency: DNA swabs

Major General Anurut Kritsanakaraket, commander of the Southern Border Provinces Police Operation Centre, speaks to Reuters in Yala province, ThailandBy Amy Sawitta Lefevre YALA, Thailand (Reuters) - Thailand's military government has introduced a new strategy to curb the insurgency that has rumbled on in the country's jungle-blanketed deep south for more than a decade: DNA swabbing. It has been widely panned for mishandling the economy and undermining democracy, but the top brass that seized power a year ago can point to a drop of more than 50 percent in attacks by Muslim Malay rebels across the restive region. The Muslim Attorney Centre in the province of Pattani says security-related charges this year are set to exceed 2014's, in part because more DNA evidence is being used. While the military credits DNA collecting for the decrease in violence, lawyers and activists say the forced sweeps are further alienating locals in the Muslim-dominated provinces of Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat that were annexed by Thailand a century ago.
