Armed Guard in Thailand Holds Off Pack Attacking Nursing School

Great way to prevent violence against women


On March 11, a nursing school in Thailand was attacked in the early morning hours by 12 masked men wielding machetes.  The nursing school is an all female institution for local 15- and 16-year-old girls in the Buriram Province.   It is believed the motivation behind the attack was to lower morale and intimidate the all female institution.

As you can see in the video above, the group of 12 men approach the school in the bed of a pick up truck.  As the female students start to flee, an administrator armed with a handgun emerges from the building sending all 12 assailants fleeing in various directions.
