THAILAND- Fighting Insurgency

THAILAND Fighting Insurgency THE Communist Party of Thailand (CPT) has been growing stronger during the last three years of non-military rule, and it was partly this growing strength which provoked the military 're-takeover' of October 6, 1976. According to Thai intelligence sources, the number of armed insurgents was estimated to be at 3,500 in 1972, 5,000 in 1973, and 8,000 in 1974. One prominent Thai journalist, now under arrest, estimated a sharp increase in the numbers of insurgents to 20,000 at the time of the coup. 33 provinces of a total of 72 have been under martial law.
