Thailand plagued by growing sectarian strife

Southern city of Pattani in struggle to mend damaged relations between Muslim and Buddhist communities.

    Thailand's coup leader-turned-Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha is making an official visit to neighbouring Malaysia, as part of a renewed effort to end fighting between troops and armed separatists in southern Thailand.

    Malaysia, who has faced accusations of sheltering Thai Muslim separatists - which it has denied -, has been acting as a facilitator in peace talks.

    Al Jazeera's Veronica Pedrosa reports from the southern Thai city of Pattani on how the conflict has damaged relations between Muslim and Buddhist communities.
