  • Description

    ONE BANDIT WAS SHOT DEAD AND FOUR MORE INJURED WHEN POLICE SURPRISED THEIR GANG IN THE JUNGLE NEAR HAADYAI, SOUTHERN THAILAND, ON TUESDAY
    THE BANDIT GANG, ALL HEAVILY ARMED, WERE MAKING FOR THE VILLAGE OF HAADYAI TO GET FOOD AND ENCOURAGE LOCAL MEN TO JOIN THEM WHEN THEY WERE SPOTTED BY THE AREA POLICE PATROL. WITHIN SECONDS A HEAVY GUN BATTLE HAD BROKE OUT.

    MORE THAN 60 BANDITS HAVE BEEN KILLED IN THAILAND'S THREE SOUTHERN PROVINCES NEAR THE MALAYSIAN BORDER SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THIS YEAR, ACCORDING TO POLICE REPORTS. THE THREE PROVINCES ARE NARATJIWAT, YALA AND PATTANI, WHERE REBELS OF A MOSLEM SEPARATIST MOVEMENT AND MALAYSIAN COMMUNIST GUERILLAS HAVE BEEN CARRYING OUT A TERRORIST CAMPAIGN FROM JUNGLE HIDEOUTS.

    THE POLICE CHIEF OF SOUTHERN THAILAND CLAIMS THAT 85 BANDITS HAVE SURRENDERED IN HIS TERRITORY RECENTLY.

    IN PATTALUNG PROVINCE, WHERE 200 BANDITS ARE BELIEVED TO BE OPERATING, POLICE HELICOPTERS HAVE DROPPED LEAFLETS INVITING THE BANDITS TO SURRENDER. THE LEAFLETS ALSO ADVISED VILLAGERS IN REMOTE AREAS TO BE PREPARED FOR EVACUATION AT SHORT NOTICE BECAUSE THE THAI GOVERNMENT WAS ABOUT TO LAUNCH INTENSIVE OPERATIONS AGAINST THE BANDITS IN THAT AREA.
