BANGKOK: Nine policemen were injured by gunmen at a road checkpoint in southern Thailand on Monday, police said.

The unknown gunmen in a pickup truck opened fire on the policemen in the early hours near a roadside market in Yala's Krong Pinang district, about 1,100 km from the Thai capital, Xinhua news agency reported.

The policemen, two of whom were seriously wounded, were rushed to hospital while their assailants remain at large.

The latest attack on government personnel by the insurgents followed Thursday's attack at a police station in a neighbouring area which killed one policeman and injured few others.
