Government troops killed a southern militant in a brief clash in Raman district of Yala province this morning.
The clash came after a combined force of troops and special action force police combed a suspected target in Tambon Kototurae of Raman district following a ripoff that a group of RKK militants was holding a meeting in house plotting attack on government premises.
The approach of the force alarmed the militants who opened fire in bid to escape.
In a brief gunfight, one RKK militant identified as Ko Sent, 39, was shot dead.
He was wanted for serious crimes.
