Three deaths in the south

This story appears to have been picked up by the BBC but does not as yet appear on the websites of either The Nation or The Bangkok Post.

Apparently Islamic militants have killed three people in southern Thailand.

A man and wife were found dead at the entrance of a rubber plantation in Yala province - the man had been shot and then decapitated. The third person was killed in a separate attack by a gunman on a motorcycle.

This probably does not fit too well with the statement today by the Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont that he believed the bloody violence in Thailand's restive southern provinces will ease in the near future.
