Thai soldiers killed by insurgents in restive south


BANGKOK: Suspected militants have shot dead two Thai soldiers and burned their bodies, police said on Friday, in the latest outbreak of violence in the kingdom’s insurgency-battered deep south.The drive-by shooting in the Ruso district of Narathiwat province took place shortly before noon on Thursday, the last day of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan, a period when the region often sees a surge in attacks. More than 6,300 people have been killed in the Thai south since 2004 in a conflict largely ignored by Thais and forgotten by the wider world.
