One policeman has been injured along with an alleged insurgent when troops and southern insurgents clashed in Songkhla’s Sabayoi district today.

The exchange of gunfire happened at 10:30am this morning when troops and police reportedly searched for suspects in Ban Long Khuan village in Tambon Khuha.

The team received a tipoff that December 26’s Khuan Niang district bombing suspects might have been hiding in the village. When the team arrived, the suspects opened fire.

A suspect, Amarun Mudoh, was later found critically injured. He was taken to the Sabayoi Hospital.

Police said Amarun was wanted for last December’s bombing and he was also suspected of stealing cars in Songkhla’s Thepha district on January 8.

During the shooting, Pol Sgt Sitthikorn Intasao, a border patrol officer, was also injured and taken to the district hospital. He was last reported to be in a stable condition.
