Suspect insurgents attack S. Thailand, one dead
Suspected insurgents on Monday ambushed a teacher protection unit in Thailand's southern most province of Narathiwat, killing one villager and injuring seven soldiers, local media reported, according to Xinhua.
The attack occurred around 08:00 local time (0100GMT) on a road in Kado village, Rusoh-ok Town, Rusoh County, when insurgents detonated a roadside bomb and opened fire at a group of soldiers providing security for local teachers, the Channel 7 said.
The injured, two in serious condition, were then rushed to the Rusoh County hospital.
Also in Narathiwat on Sunday, two people were killed and some 20 wounded in two attacks by suspected insurgents.
Thailand's deep south comprises mainly the three provinces of Yala, Pattani, Narathiwat and some parts of Songkla province. Over 3,500 people have been killed in insurgent violence in the area since January 2004.
