Policeman shot dead, one injured, in Pattani attacks

A policeman was shot dead and a defence volunteer injured in a shooting in Pattani's Muang district yesterday.

Police said that Police Senior Sgt-Major Marorseh Muna, 44, was having tea at a local teashop when two men pulled up on a motorbike.

Marorseh was then fatally shot in the head by one of the suspects, before they fled the scene with the policeman's firearm.

A 'stray' bullet also hit a bystander - defence volunteer Isamaeh Masae - in the arm.
