Pattani: A roadside bomb has killed two paramilitary soldiers and wounded two others in Thailand`s restive south.

Police Lt Col Wichai Jaengsakul says the bomb exploded late yesterday when eight paramilitary troops were patrolling a road in Yala province.

A Yala Hospital spokesman said today that four soldiers were seriously injured and two later died.

Paramilitary soldiers are defence volunteers who are paid by the military but are not in the regular Army.

Two separate roadside bomb blasts last week killed eight people in the south.

More than 4,000 people have been killed in Thailand`s three southernmost provinces since an Islamist insurgency erupted in 2004.
