Security authorities believe an insurgent group led by Masorae Duerama carried out Wednesday's deadly gun attack in Pattani that left six civilians dead and seriously wounded another.
Mr Masorae, from tambon Pakaharang in Pattani's Muang district, allegedly specialises in assembling bombs. The suspected rebel leader is wanted on several arrest warrants for a string of attacks in the deep South, a source said.
