- +

Two rangers were killed and one seriously injured when a bomb similar to one that killed two other soldiers earlier this month went off in Yala province Tuesday. 

Pakasit Rakphan and Chatchai Lohithan died in the 4:30pm explosion while their team from Rangers Company 4713 were conducting a security patrol near Samakkhi School in Kato village in Yala district's Patae tambon. The injured member of Rangers Task Force 47 was not identified.

A bomb-disposal team examined the scene this morning and found the device was made of a gas cylinder that had been buried under a tree on one side of a canal.
