(CNN) -- CNN International turns the spotlight on terrorism in Southeast Asia during a week of special reports -- "Southeast Asia: The Forgotten Front," beginning Monday, December 18.

Asia has witnessed many terrorist acts in the past few years. In a series of daily reports running throughout the week, CNN Bangkok Correspondent Dan Rivers travels to the Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia for an in-depth look at terrorist movements in the region.

CNN chronicles the rising tide of terror in the region, examining Islamic fundamentalism in Southeast Asia, the effect of the war in Iraq and the risks of future large-scale terror attacks.

Other reports focus on:

  • The U.S. Special Forces working with the Philippine army to track the Abu Sayyaf terrorist organization;
  • A look at the U.S. effort to win the hearts and minds of the poor in Jolo, Philippines;
  • Following the trail of Indonesia's most wanted terrorist, in central Java.
  • Finally, CNN asks what effect the war in Iraq is having on the almost daily violence in southern Thailand.
  • "Southeast Asia: The Forgotten Front" reports are throughout the week on CNN International, including CNN Today (Monday through Friday, 7 a.m.-10:30 a.m. Hong Kong time).

    Packages will be replayed by CNN International throughout the day.
