5 killed, 11 wounded in Thailand`s violent South

More than 4,700 people have been killed in Thailand`s Muslim-dominated southern provinces since 2004.



Pattani: Police say suspected militants have killed five people and wounded 11 in three overnight attacks in Thailand`s insurgency-plagued south.

Pol Col Chaiwat Nittayawimon says one soldier and one paramilitary ranger were killed overnight Wednesday when about 10 suspected militants attacked their operations base in Songkhla province. Another ranger was wounded. Police did not say if the attackers stole any weapons.

Attacks in Songkhla province are rare.
In two other attacks late Wednesday and early Thursday in other southern provinces suspected insurgents killed three, including a 4-year-old girl, and wounded 10.

More than 4,700 people have been killed in Thailand`s Muslim-dominated southern provinces since an Islamist insurgency flared in 2004.
