Two Border Patrol Police officers in Southern Thailand were killed Friday while praying in a mosque in the latest violence believed linked to a Muslim separatist insurgency, police said.

Police Col. Pariwat Kwanmanij, the chief of Than To police station in Yala province, said four attackers slipped into the mosque and shot the officers at point-blank range in the head.

Pariwat said the attackers, who fled after the shooting, were suspected of being part of an insurgency that flared in 2004 and has claimed about 7,000 lives in predominantly Buddhist Thailand’s three southernmost provinces, which have Muslim majorities.
