BANGKOK, Thailand – In what appear to be a series of co-ordinated attacks early Monday (January 14th), insurgents stole or disabled dozens of closed-circuit security cameras across six districts of the southern border province of Yala, local media reported.

The Bangkok Post reported that a total of 76 CCTV cameras were damaged – smashed or torched – and three others were stolen across the troubled Deep South province.

The Nation reported that the insurgents also managed to destroy eight electrical power poles holding the closed circuit televisions.

Officials said in some cases the cameras managed to capture usable footage of the arsonists.
