One dead, 20 in­jured in south Thai­land am­bush

The Phnom Penh Post - - WORLD -

ONE sol­dier died and 20 other peo­ple were wounded, in­clud­ing two civil­ians, as sus­pected rebels am­bushed an army pa­trol in Thai­land’s vi­o­lences­tricken deep south, of­fi­cials said yes­ter­day. The Mus­lim­ma­jor­ity re­gion that bor­ders Malaysia has been roiled by vi­o­lence for over a decade as eth­nic Malay in­sur­gents bat­tle the Bud­dhist-ma­jor­ity state for more au­ton­omy. More than 6,800 peo­ple have died – the ma­jor­ity civil­ians – in a con­flict that grinds on far from in­ter­na­tional head­lines.
