NARATHIWAT, Thailand – Government forces killed a leading member of a Runda Kumpulan Kecil (RKK) separatist cell late Saturday (March 2nd) in the Deep South province of Narathiwat's Rangae district, the Bangkok Post reported.

Officials say Masa-e Hajidiyoliya's body was riddled with bullets after three teams of the 48th Rangers Regiment laid siege to a house in tambon Bongo, where RKK insurgents were reportedly hiding. Masa-e was gunned down outside as he tried to escape. Two other insurgents managed to get away.

Officials say Masa-e faced six arrest warrants for six security-related incidents between 2007 and 2009.
