NARATHIWAT -- Two territorial defence volunteers were shot and wounded from ambush but still chased off their attackers in Yingo district on Tuesday evening, police said.
The attack occurred about 6pm while Ruslan Haji Dolo, 29, and Dingsimi Laya, 27, were travelling on a motorcycle from an outpost to get food supplies at the district office.
As they passed in front of the district agriculture office, they were fired at by gunmen on the roadside. The two volunteers returned fire with their rifles and the attackers fled.
Mr Ruslan was hit in the left side of the hip and Mr Dingsimi in the left leg. They were admitted to Yingo Hospital.
