A school director in southern Songkhla province Wednesday pleaded for an emergency help for some 120 Muslim students stranded in a mosque in flood-hit Hat Yai district.

Yusuf Nima, the director of Hat Yai Witthayakhan School, said the students were stranded at the Dinul Islam Mosque since Tuesday after flashfloods had hit Hat Yai.

Yusuf said he could not contact the authorities for help and the students have had no food since Tuesday. He said they had only some bread and roti from some local residents.

The students wanted to be evacuated to return to their homes in three southernmost border provinces of Yala, Pattani and Narathiwat.

Since Friday heavy rains from the tropical depression in the Gulf of Thailand have brought heavy flooding to Hat Yai in Songkhla province, the main commercial district in Thailand's South.

The city is completely cut off on Monday as rising floodwaters pour into the city, stalling all business and sending residents scrambling for assistance.
