Security officials in three coastal provinces along the Andaman Sea well known as tourist attractions have been put on alert for potential violent incidents by southern militants.

In Krabi province, local reporters explained that tourist police on Saturday checked all the 40 monitoring cameras installed in commercial parts and spots popular among holidaymakers to make sure they are in working condition.

They said that Pol Maj-Gen Worawit Panprung, commander of Krabi territorial police, ordered the security beef-up after having an intelligence review that southern militants might release another wave of attacks against tourist attractions in Krabi in addition to two other coastal provinces related to an arson attack around Ao Nang of Krabi around August last year.

In neighbouring Phang-nga province, police launched a offense crackdown during June 1-9 and managed to seize 17 illegal firearms, including an M16 assault rifle, 260 rounds of ammunition, 15,000 methamphetamine pills.
Similar security beef-up was also reported in Trang province where a bomb explosion took place in August last year.
