Thai militants kill four: Police
Yala: Suspected Islamist militants shot dead two policemen and two civilians in Thailand`s troubled south as a violence-plagued Ramadan neared an end, police said on Friday.
Attacks in the Muslim-majority region on the Malaysian border have spiked during the traditional holy month of fasting and prayer, adding to the toll of around 3,900 people who have died in a five-year insurgency.
Gunmen shot dead a Buddhist border patrol police sergeant as he drove to pick up his wife, a teacher, in restive Pattani province yesterday, police said.
Another Buddhist policeman was killed in an ambush during a patrol in Pattani province late yesterday, while two other members of the patrol were seriously wounded, they said.
Also in Pattani, gunmen shot a Muslim deputy village chief in a food market yesterday and he died on the way to hospital, said police.
Separately a Muslim man was gunned down and killed in his grocery store in neighbouring Narathiwat province by two men pretending to be customers, they said.
