Insurgents kill 7 in Thailand`s restive south
Pattani: Police say suspected Muslim insurgents have killed seven people and injured 10 more in Thailand`s violence-plagued south.
Police Col Kwandee Chimplee says assailants opened fire at a security checkpoint on Sunday night in Narathiwat city, then set off homemade bombs near two grocery stores in the same area.
Kwandee said on Monday the dead included two civilian defence volunteers and two civilians, along with a soldier, his wife and son.
Kwandee says authorities believe the same group of militants was responsible for all three attacks.
Narathiwat is one of Thailand`s three Muslim-dominated southernmost provinces. Nearly 5,000 people have been killed since an Islamist insurgency erupted in the region in 2004.
