Thai security forces patrol the railway in the troubled southern province of Yala March 27, 2013. The first round of formal peace talks between Thai government and the insurgent group Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN) will take place on March 28 and will be mediated by Malaysia. Although the first round is set for Thursday, there has been no halt in the fighting and people in the region see no early end to one of Southeast Asia's bloodiest conflicts.
