Four killed in Pattani on election eve

- +

An assistant district chief and three soldiers were killed in a bomb explosion in Pattani's Khok Pho district on Saturday night while on their way to inspect a polling unit, Election Commission secretary-general Puchong Nutrawong said on Sunday. 

Mr Puchong said Jaktra Promkaew, an assistant chief of Khok Pho district, was also the head of polling unit 4 in Pattani's Constituency 2.

Prapas Chainapong, director of the Pattani election committee, said he believed the bombing had nothing to do with the election since it took place during a clash between militants and a village defence team.
