Two defence volunteers manning a road checkpoint, in Muang district of Thailand’s southern province of Yala, have been shot dead while a third volunteer and a villager have been wounded in an attack by suspected insurgents Sunday afternoon.
According to witness accounts, six suspected insurgents, riding three motorcycles, approached the checkpoint in Tambon Lampaya and the three pillion passengers opened fire at the volunteers manning the checkpoint.
Killed at the scene were Abdulloh Waedoloh and Suriya Rakmuang, while another unidentified volunteer and a civilian were injured.
The attackers then grabbed two of the victim’s assault rifles and all six of them fled the scene.
