In Thailand’s restive Muslim south, six people have been killed and five wounded in the most recent upsurge in violence blamed on separatist militants.

Reuters reports that, “the attacks, which involved drive-by shootings and bombings, took place late on Monday and on Tuesday and targeted both Muslims and the region’s minority Buddhists.”

A Buddhist couple, both teachers, was murdered by gunmen early on Tuesday in Rangae in Narathiwat province, while they were riding on motorcycles, cops said.

A few hours later in the same district, a Buddhist defense volunteer was gunned down and assassinated in another drive-by attack.

The shooting occurred two days after suspected ethnic Malay rebels torched government offices, shops, bus shelters and phone booths in simultaneous attacks in seven districts of Narathiwat that borders Malaysia.
