Pattani: Suspected insurgent shot by southern troops

The Nation is reporting that suspected Muslim insurgent has been killed during a gunfight with Army troops from the Pattani Taskforce in the Kapor district on Wednesday morning.

Troops from the Pattani Taskforce surrounded a house in Moo 3 village in Tambon Karubee after they learned that the suspect, Sulaiman Muhammad, was hiding there.

Troops claimed that the suspect shot at them first with a .30 calibre rifle, so they returned fire. The suspect, who was wanted on an arrest warrant issued by the Narathiwat court, was later found dead in the house.
