Four Muser tribesmen were killed in a clash between a team of drug couriers and rangers from the Pha Muang Task Force in Chiang Rai's Thoed Thai district early on Sunday morning.
About 230,000 methamphetamine tablets were seized after the clash.
The exchange of fire occurred at about 7.55am when a 15-strong team of rangers from the 31st Rangers Regiment of the Pha Muang Task Force was on patrol in a valley near Ban E-kor Armae village at the Thai-Myanmar border in Thoed Thai district. The rangers had been sent to the area after information was received that a group of drug couriers would cross the border into Thailand with about one million speed pills.
