Gunmen killed three relatives of a former defense volunteer inside a house in Thailand’s insurgency-hit Deep South, police said Wednesday evening, hours after a roadside bombing wounded a soldier and five volunteers.
The gunmen fired into a house in Tung Yang Daeng, a district of Pattani province, killing Hasana Hama, 29, Nusaree Jaemeng, 32 and Yusoh Nilae, 73, authorities said.
“According to the initial investigation, four villains came on two motorbikes and started firing inside the house,” police Lt. Boonthep Kerdmud said.
Earlier, police Lt. Gen. Thompong Petchpiroon, said a roadside bomb injured the six security personnel who were riding in a pickup truck to a school in Tambon Bang Khao, a village cluster in Nong Chik, another district of Pattani.
“The incident occurred while the police officers were on their way to investigate damage to two CCTVs burned down at Ban Sai Mo school,” Thompong said. “All were taken to Nong Chik hospital.”
