Ten killed in series of attacks in southern Thailand
Thursday 03 September 2009
An army spokesman says 10 people have been killed and at least 25 wounded in two days of attacks in insurgency-plagued southern Thailand.
Army spokesman Col. Parinya Chaidilok says a series of drive-by shootings yesterday in the provinces of Narathiwat, Pattani and Yala left eight dead, including Buddhist and Muslim civilians, a Muslim candidate for the local administration and a volunteer security official.
Parinya says security forces also shot and killed two suspected insurgents in raids Wednesday in Yala and Narathiwat.
He says a bomb hidden on a motorcycle exploded in Pattani, wounding 25 people Thursday.
More than 3,700 people have died in Thailand's three southernmost provinces since an insurgency flared in January 2004.
