A militant and a ranger were killed, and another ranger critically wounded, in a clash in Narathiwat’s Cho Airong district early Thursday morning, reports said. 

About 1am, Col Issara Chanthakrayom, deputy commander of Ranger Company 48 in Narathiwat, led 40 paramilitary rangers to raid house no 274/7 at Ban Aipayee, tambon Chuab of Cho Airong after receiving a tip that suspected militants were hiding there.

On seeing the rangers, armed men in the house opened fire on them. The two sides exchanged gunfire for about 10 minutes, after which the militants retreated, leaving behind one body.
