The death toll from a two-year Muslim insurgency in southern Thailand has risen to over 1,700, with bomb attacks steadily increasing over the past few months, a professor who tracks the violence said Monday. At least 1,730 people have been killed since violence flared in January 2004, and 2,510 injured, said Srisomphop Chitpiromsri, a political science professor at the University of Pattani's Songkhla campus, who heads a research team that tallies the attacks.
