A backhoe belonging to a private company was found on Sunday morning to have been set on fire and damaged beyond repair in Narathiwat's Rueso district.
The machine belonged to Nara Para Company which was clearing land in tambon Suwari.

Police were investigating whether the attack was from a business conflict or an incident by southern insurgents.
