Burmese Muslim killed

Two people died, including a Burmese Muslim, and two others were injured in separate attacks in the restive South, police said yesterday.

Hasen Abdullah, 31 a Burmese worker was shot dead at about 8pm on Sunday night in Narathiwat province's Sungai Padi district while travelling home from prayers at a nearby mosque, but nobody informed police until 8am yesterday. Police said one of two men on a motorbike shot him and drove away.

Chid Pethkard, a 63-year-old orchard owner, was injured in a gun attack yesterday while cycling from his home to a market in Narathiwat's Joh I Rong district. He was hit twice in the back. The motivation for the attack was unclear but police suspected it was just another example of the on-going daily violence in the region.

In Pattani, Abdullah Macha, a local doctor was shot dead late on Sunday night while walking back from a mosque.

One of two men on a motorbike fired at him with a 9mm pistol at short range from the back. He died after being admitted to a district hospital.

Also in Pattani, Faridah Doloh, a public health volunteer from Khok Pho was attacked in a drive-by-shooting while riding her motorbike to work in neighbouring Songkhla province at about 8am yesterday.

She was hit three times in the stomach before being rushed to Pattani hospital.

Meanwhile, a combined military-police force yesterday confiscated a number of bomb detonators, ammunition and ammonia nitrate during a raid on 11 spots in Narathiwat's Sungai Padi district - believed to be militant training ground.
