A member of a village defence team was hurt in a gun attack on Buke Bakong School in tambon Tapoyo of Narathiwat's Yingo district on Sunday night, police said. 

Pol Lt-Gen Vasin Suebsombat, deputy Yingo police chief, said seven people, including assistant teachers and members of the village defence unit, were on security duty in front of a sentry box inside the school when a number of assailants arrived on a pick-up truck.

One of the men in the back seat fired three shots at them with a war weapon. One bullet grazed the ear of Amran Ubong, 21, a security team member. Asaman Chehe, 33, an assistant teacher, hurt his leg when he fell to the ground while running for cover.
