A wanted insurgent has been shot dead by security forces during a raid on a hideout in Pattani yesterday afternoon.

Thai PBS reports that the victim was later identified as 37 year old Sarisan Amri who was the subject of five outstanding arrest warrants for his suspected involvement in a series of offences in southern province.

About 100 troops and para-military rangers headed to Village Two of Tambon Bang Khao in Nong Chik where a group of suspected militants was reported to be hiding. The security forces ordered those inside the hideout to come out using loud hailers and warning shots. The suspects opened fire, resulting in a brief, but fierce gun battle, according to Thai PBS.

When the gunfire stopped, the security forces broke into the hideout where they found the body of Amri riddled with bullets, about 100 metres from the building, along with a .45 calibre handgun.

Two other suspects were able to flee the scene.
