15 Pakistanis detained in south Thailand as terror suspects

Bangkok: Police have detained 15 Pakistanis in Thailand’s insurgency-hit southern border province of Yala on suspicion of being linked to international terrorists.

The group, which was reportedly in the Muslim-majority region to raise money for flood victims in Pakistan, was detained after authorities noted overseas money transfers by them to international terror suspects, reported UNI.

According to police, a local bank employee reported that the Pakistan nationals had transferred money to a person abroad who is listed in the bank’s official database as having links with a foreign terror group.

A police force raided the Yala My House hotel in the province yesterday where the men were staying in four rooms.
