Suspected Muslim militants kill 8 in Thai south

Police say suspected Muslim insurgents have killed eight people in several attacks in Thailand's restive south. Police Lt. Gen. Kong-att Suwannakham says militants detonated a homemade bomb Saturday near a football field in Pattani province , killing four policemen and wounding a dozen others who had come to play a friendly match with villagers. In Yala province , police say insurgents set off a roadside bomb and shot at an army patrol, killing three soldiers and wounding two. In Narathiwat province , two men on a motorcycle fatally shot a former local official in his pickup truck. More than 4,300 people have been killed in predominantly Buddhist Thailand's three Muslim-dominated provinces since an Islamist insurgency erupted there in 2004.
