Thai PBS is reporting that a Muslim militant has been sentenced to death for his involvement in three violent incidents.

The incidents took place around Pattani province where seven people were killed and eight others injured.
Speaking to the media yesterday, Col Thanawee Suwannarat, from the Region 4 Internal Security Operations Command, identified the militant as Ibrohem Sungaibaru.

In the first incident, four people were killed and seven wounded in a gun attack in Pattani’s Mae Lan district on Feb 13, 2014.

The second incident was a car robbery in Nong Chik district on Aug 1, 2013.

In the third incident which occurred on Sept 12, 2013, three rangers of Rangers Company 2208 were killed and one injured in a gun attack in Pattani’s Yarang district.

A total of seven people were killed and eight wounded in the three incidents.

Ibrohem was found guilty as charged and sentenced to death by the Pattani Provincial Court on July 13. Col Thanawee says the defendant retains the right to appeal against the court’s decision.
