Peace elusive in Thailand's south

Blast overshadows visit to troubled region by Thai and Malaysian leaders.

     

    A Buddhist couple have become the latest victims of a wave of deadly attacks in southern Thailand that have killed more than 3,700 people over the past six years.

    Their deaths in a bomb attack at a market in Narathiwat province came ahead of a high-profile visit to the region by the Thai and Malaysian prime ministers.

    Malaysia's prime minister, Najib Razak, has called for autonomy for the Muslim-majority southern provinces as a way of stopping the violence.

    Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay reports from Narathiwat province.
