Thai police say suspected Muslim militants have killed at least two people in separate incidents in Thailand's troubled southern provinces.
Police say a Burmese migrant worker was shot and beheaded in Pattani province late Thursday. They say the man was killed in the presence of his daughter.
Authorities say the victim's head was found along a nearby road. They say when police went to retrieve the head, a small bomb was remotely detonated but no one was hurt.
Separately, a man was killed in a drive-by shooting in the region. And in another incident, a policeman was injured when a bomb exploded in Yala province.
Thai officials say at least 15,00 people have been killed in the southern provinces of Pattani, Narathiwat and Yala since 2004.
Thailand's new military government says it is working to stabilize the region. Most people in the three provinces are Muslim, while the rest of Thailand is mainly Buddhist.
