Southern Islamic teachers and defecting militants are being more closely screened as authorities suspect one of them was involved in the Big C bombing that injured 61 people in Pattani province last week.
The person in question did not attend a full training course, only about half of it. He defected physically, but not spiritually. He did not attend the part concerning attitude adjustment and creation.
Lt Gen Piyawat Nakwanit, commander of the 4th army, said 4,488 defectors would be re-examined. He said Suhaiming Sama-ae, who had defected in February, was a suspect in the Big C Pattani bombing.
