Near-daily shooting and bomb attacks have claimed more than 6,800 lives since 2004, with both sides accused of rights abuses and atrocities.

Thailand's ruling junta, which took power in 2014, has tried to restart peace talks with the Muslim militants.

But the negotiations have failed to gain traction, while attacks continue across the region.
