Rebel gunmen kill 10 civilians

April 29, 2009|FROM TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Suspected Muslim rebels killed 10 civilians in a flurry of attacks in insurgency-plagued southern Thailand, the army said, on the fifth anniversary of an assault by security forces against militants at a mosque.

In the deadliest incident, at least six gunmen in a pickup truck stormed into a house in Yala province, opening fire on a Muslim family of five, killing four of them, an army spokesman said.

Two Muslim rubber plantation workers were later found dead in the compound of a nearby mosque.
