Thai rebels launch coordinated attacks against government targets, resulting in a counter-attack that killed more than 100 rebels. The clash is the latest in a string of skirmishes that began in January in largely Muslim provinces. Thaksin Shinawatra, prime minister of the Buddhist-dominated Thai government, blamed the attacks on criminals and smugglers. NPR's Michael Sullivan reports.
