Two rangers suffered minor injuries when insurgents detonated a roadside bomb to ambush a patrol unit in Pattani province on Friday (August 2) evening, police said.


The attack happened on the main road of Moo 1 village in Tambon Paku in the Thung Yang Daeng district.


The two rangers were identified as Jiroj Kasetyungyuenspapha and Yuhari Sani. They escaped with grazes on their arms.


Police said the unit of nine rangers were patrolling the road and were approaching Ban Padae Palus School when the bomb was detonated. They escaped serious harm as the bomb exploded shortly before the unit reached the roadside where the device was planted.


Police inspection found the bomb was made with explosives weighing about 10 kilograms.


After the explosion, Colonel Phumipat Boonruangkhao, the commander of the 44th Ranger Taskforce, deployed troops to search the area and sought help from security officials in nearby Raman district in Yala to watch out for the suspects who might flee there.
