Pol Col Jiradet Prasawang, superintendent of Rangae police, said two roadside bombs went off as a team of nine paramilitary rangers patrolled a village in tambon Bor Ngor.

The first blast did not injure anyone, but another bomb went off as rangers inspected the scene of the first explosion, injuring a civilian who was riding his motorcycle through the area. The villager was named as Muhammad Yohan.

The second attack happened in Narathiwat’s Rueso district where a villager was seriously injured in a drive-by shooting.

Police said Ismail Mah was riding his motorcycle when a gunman on another motorbike fired at him. The gunman fled after the attack.

Ismail was shot in the torso and was rushed to Naradhiwas Rajanagarindra Hospital by a passerby.
