Rebel attack in southern Thailand kills four soldiers

Separatist rebels in southern Thailand have killed four soldiers in an audacious attack on an army base.

Military officials say up to 40 gunmen overran the camp in Narathiwat in an unusually well-organised raid.

Muslim separatists carry out regular attacks in Thailand's three southern provinces, but usually through roadside bombings or drive-by shootings.

From Bangkok, the BBC's Alistair Leithead reports.
