Attack kills 15 at southern Thailand security post

Gunmen fired at security personnel at checkpoints in Thailand's insurgency-wracked south, killing 15 volunteer officers and wounding five others, police said Wednesday.

 

Some of the attackers may have been injured in an exchange of gunfire during the attack late Tuesday night, based on blood-stained clothing at the scene, said Col. Kiattisak Neewong, an army spokesperson who is heading to the scene in Yala province. Officials said the assailants took several weapons from the checkpoints, including an M16 rifle and 3 shotguns.
