Phuket Governor orders authorities on high alert for undisclosed terror threat

Citing a "reliable news source that there is a threat of non-peaceful groups coming to Phuket to create a situation", the memo dated February 13 and signed by the Phuket Governor, also asked for all local government office heads to coordinate with the respective police, military and security chiefs to ensure that precautionary inspections are carried out, and to ensure that there are no black spots in CCTV coverage.

Any suspicious behavior or activity should be reported to authorities at once. In addition to the usual emergency channels, leads can be reported by calling 076-217-833 and 076-215-165. 

The memo did not name the reliable news source or provide any other information about the percieved threat.

Went to Jungceylon at Patong yesterday, not looking in car boot like at central (you can have a bomb on back seat and that's ok) lol.
They are not checking rucksacks as you go in either, so much for high alert!

So what does this mean...?... that all police had to report immediately to the station and pull up a chair in front of CCTV with the hopes they can see it happen?... or now the police will be looking carefully into tourists motorbike seats for bombs.  Heaven help this place if anyone really wanted to cause mayhem.

A reliable "news" source not an "intelligence" source? Hmmm, doesn't give you a very secure feeling does it?
