Five soldiers killed in Southern Thailand
Thursday, October 6, 2005
The attack occurred whilst the soldiers were eating their evening meal. A representative of the Thai army said that the attackers fired assault rifles at the group before fleeing the scene in a pick-up truck. Metal spikes were strewn on the road to foil pursuit. In addition to the deaths, a number of firearms were stolen prior to the insurgents making their escape.
Over one thousand people have been killed in insurgency-related incidents in the predominantly Muslim south of Thailand since 2004.
