(Quoted directly from the Government’s Public Relations Department)
His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun has been deeply concerned about the people and officials affected by unrest in the southern border provinces.
His Majesty on January 21, 2019 assigned Privy Councilor General Paiboon Koomchaya to present baskets of various items given by His Majesty to relatives of the monks killed in the recent temple shooting, as well as a number of bags with royal gifts to other affected people, officials and volunteers.
The Commanding-General of the Fourth Army Area Command has instructed the inspection of 388 temples and Buddhist centers in the deep South. Security measures have been stepped up to ensure safety in various local communities and temples.
He stressed that at least a group of security officials and forces of the people’s sector must be posted to take care of each temple. Following the violent incident at a temple in Narathiwat, monks of all the 388 temples still go out to receive food offerings as usual.
Meanwhile, Special Representative of the Government Major General Nipon Rongsawas on January 21, 2019 chaired a meeting in Songkhla province to discuss concerted cooperation of all relevant agencies in creating better understanding about the southern situation among local people, in accordance with the royal advice to understand, reach out, and develop.
Other issues of discussion included safety measures, the revitalisation of a multicultural society, narcotics control, public participation, human rights promotion, and peacebuilding. Public relations campaigns for the southern situation are said to be necessary in order to prevent local people from falling prey to perpetrators of violence.

‘Boonrod’ plucked out of the Gulf of Thailand, 220 kilometres offshore
The story of a lucky dog. But how did he get there?
by Nicola Stow via VIRAL PRESS
Workers onboard a Thai oil rig noticed a dog’s head poking above the ripples as she was paddling around the Gulf of Thailand on Friday. The rig was 22o kilometers off the coast of Songkhla. It’s understood the Aspin dog, named Boonrod (Thai for ‘survivor’) by her rescuers, fell from a fishing trawler, according to the Bangkok Post.
Offshore drillers called out to the exhausted dog and she swam towards them, taking refuge among the rusty metal bars of the rig.
The workers then lowered a rope down to Boonrod and pulled her to safety. She stayed on the drilling platform for two nights while a special cage was welded and staff gave her food and water.
Boonrod was finally lifted by crane onto another oil vessel passing through the area last Sunday, which delivered her to vets in Songkhla, southern Thailand.
Khon Vitisak, an oil rig worker, who pulled the animal to safety, says he would like to adopt her if no owner comes forward.
“We just saw her small head but if the ripples were bigger, I think we probably wouldn’t have noticed her at all. We found her trying to swim towards our rig, which is about 220 kilometres from the shore. Thankfully the sea was quite still because the wind was calm.”
“After she made it onto the bars below the rig she didn’t cry or bark at all. We looked for a way to help her and in the end, decided to use the rope to tie around her body to lift her up. When we first took her on board she was depressed and tired from being in the water for a long time.”
