A leading militant wanted under an arrest warrant was killed in a clash with a government force in Yala's Raman district on Thursday, police said. 

He was identified as Madari Taye, 42. A warrant was issued by Kapho district police and approved by the Pattani Court for his arrest on Aug 17, 2011.

Madari is on police record as a leading member of an RKK separatist group led by Masawi Kama. The group killed four rangers and set fire to them following an ambush in tambon Jakua of Raman district in Yala province in 2005, police said.
