Two militants were killed in Thailand’s violence-plagued Deep South after a bomb they were transporting prematurely exploded, the military said Thursday.

Their deaths came during a night of violence across a region plagued by unrest for over a decade as ethnic Malay rebels battle Thai troops for more autonomy from the Buddhist-majority state.

Colonel Yutanam Petchmoang, deputy spokesman of the southern army, said the two militants died while transporting an improvised explosive device in Sabayoi district, Songkhla province.

“They were on a motorbike,” he said. “We have in their records that they were local militant sympathizers.” The military said insurgents launched a string of gun and grenade attacks across Thailand's so-called Deep South on Wednesday night with 13 separate incidents recorded.

No-one was killed in the attacks but five people were lightly injured.

Bombs and drive-by shootings are a weekly occurrence in Thailand’s south where the fighting has claimed more than 6,800 lives - mostly civilians - since 2004.
