"Teachers to get guns for self-defense" (Thailand)
Twenty-one teachers have been killed since southern violence flared up in January 2004, including a female principal in Narathiwat yesterday.
Deputy Education Minister Rung Kaewdaeng said yesterday he was discussing the idea with Khunying Kasama Vorawan, permanent secretary for education, to develop a market for used guns which were affordable especially for teachers and education staff in the South. . . .
