Two injured in Narathiwat attacks
Two villagers were injured in separate attacks in Narathiwat province Thursday, police said.
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.
