Suspected separatists shot dead two Muslims in the Thai south on Sunday, police said, as the army warned of possible strikes by militants on the anniversary of a deadly mosque raid.

A 36-year-old Muslim suspected of involvement in the insurgency and a 38-year-old local government worker were shot dead in separate incidents in Narathiwat province, police said.

Thai security officials also warned that rebels may be planning attacks to mark the fourth anniversary of the Krue Se Mosque massacre, when 32 people, some suspected rebels, were killed by Thai security forces in Pattani province.
