Pattani, Thailand – Suspected muslim separatist insurgents dressed in police uniforms shot and killed five people in Thailand’s restive, muslim-majority South, police said Wednesday.

The attackers drove up to a spot where farmers were selling fruit Tuesday night and opened fire on the crowd with automatic weapons, said Colonel Amnuay Dee with the Saiburi police station in Pattani province, where the attack occurred.

Five people died at the scene or on the way to hospital, and three were wounded, including a 7-year-old boy and 10-year-old girl, Amnuay said.

‘The militants want to destroy the local economy and create distrust,’ Amnuay said.
