BANGKOK, Thailand – Two paramilitary rangers were wounded, one seriously, in a bombing in Pattani's Yarang district on Wednesday (June 4th), local media reported Thursday.

The two rangers were sent to Yarang Hospital for treatment of shrapnel wounds. They were part of a 10-man patrol guarding a road used by teachers near Ban Ton Makham village, Moh Mawee sub-district, when a roadside bomb detonated around 7.45am, The Bangkok Post reported.

Elsewhere on Wednesday, five suspects allegedly involved in the May 14th railway bombing in Narathiwat's Ra-ngae district were arrested in a pre-dawn raid in Tambon Kalisa, according to The Nation. The five denied any involvement in the bombing.
