Four Muslims shot dead in Thailand’s restive south.

NARATHIWAT, Thailand (AFP) - Four Muslims have been killed by suspected Islamic rebels in separate shootings in Thailand’s insurgency-plagued south, police said Saturday.

A 77-year-old rubber tapper was gunned down in an ambush while he was riding a motorcycle early Saturday in Narathiwat, one of three Muslim-majority provinces bordering Malaysia, they said. Police also found a man’s body on a road in the province early Saturday. They suspect he was shot dead by insurgents late Friday.

A Muslim village head was killed in a drive-by shooting while he was riding a motorcycle in Narathiwat late Friday, police said. And in nearby Yala province, a Muslim rubber tapper on a motorcycle was shot dead, also in a drive-by shooting, late Friday.

More than 2,200 people have been killed in a bloody separatist insurgency in the southern region since January 2004.
