Among the leaders of the Patani United Liberation Organization is Swedish citizen Kasturi Mahkota.
In an interview with Swedish Radio News, he says he is against using terrorism, but admits others in the movement have threatened Bali style bombings against tourists in Thailand.
Meanwhile, leaders of the independence movement in Aceh say they want to return home from their exile in Sweden. Malik Mahmud, considered by the Free Aceh Movement to be its prime minister, has told Reuters it is only a matter of time before he and his colleagues return to play a political role in the Indonesian province.
The Free Aceh leaders reached a peace agreement with the Indonesian authorities in Helsinki in August, ending a 30 year civil war that cost 15,000 lives.
