There has been fresh bloodshed in Thailand’s restive south.

Five people, identified as Buddhists, have been killed in a drive-by shooting as they were sitting at an open-air tea shop. Suspected Muslim separatists seeking autonomy from predominantly Buddhist Thailand are being blamed for the attack.

Violence has escalated in the region recently. Earlier this week, suspected Muslim insurgents shot dead a Buddhist family of four. The latest unrest comes after the government hailed the success of security operations in reducing the number of attacks.
