Thailand's monks in the crosshairs

Collecing alms now a dangerous act in country's south where both Buddhists and Muslims live in fear.



    In parts of Thailand, the act of collecting donations can be a dangerous one for Buddhist monks.

    Armed groups in the mainly Muslim southern provinces have been fighting for an independent state, and many carry out regular attacks on Buddhist symbols in the region.

    As Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay reports from Pattani, Thailand, the almost daily acts of violence touch everyone in the area, including those in the Muslim community.
