Suspected Muslim insurgents shot dead two men and wounded four others in a flurry of drive-by shootings in Thailand's restive south Monday, police said. A Muslim man was shot dead and his wife injured while riding a motorcycle back from work at a rubber plantation in the Raman district of Yala province, police Lt. Songkran Kankranond said. Nearby, another Muslim couple who worked at a rubber plantation was shot and severely injured, said Songkran. "We believe that the two incidents may have been perpetrated by the same people to cause fear and further unrest," said Songkran, blaming the attacks on insurgents.
