A member of the RKK separatist group was killed and a policeman wounded in a firefight early Sunday morning at a village in Ruso district of Narathiwat province.
The militant killed was identified as Tuwaedunan Nima, an RKK member wanted under an arrest warrant dated June 30, 2009 on charges of attempted murder and resisting arrest and violating the emergency decree.
The firefight took place at about 5.30am after Pol Maj-Gen Suchart Thirasawat, deputy police inspector-general, and Lt-Col Thanit Saengchan, deputy commander of the 46th Rangers Regiment, led a combined police-military unit to lay siege to House No 2/5 in Village Group 7 of tambon Ruso on a tip-off that Tuwaedunan was hiding there.
