The perpetrators of a Feb 3 shootout that killed three young brothers and wounded their parents in Narathiwat were volunteer rangers who attacked the family for revenge over a personal conflict, according to a police investigation.
The crime was not directly linked to the insurgency in the South as officers initially thought.
Investigators on Monday said they had arrested two volunteer rangers attached to the 46th Ranger Regiment in connection with the high-profile murder case. The two - identified as Maming Binmama, 21, Sakuaree Jaesae, 25 - were apprehended on Saturday but police announced their arrest and brought them to a press conference on Monday.
