NARATHIWAT - Two police officers died in a gun battle that also claimed the lives of four insurgents including an RKK leader known as "Black Pele" on Saturday. 

The shootout occurred after police and soldiers staged a joint operation to search Ban Sanae, Moo 1 of tambon Rieng in Rueso district after receiving a tip that "Black Pele" and his team were hiding in the village.

Black Pele, also known as Abdulrohing Dahisor, was suspected of leading the bomb attack that killed four officers late last month.
