Police detain Malaysian commandos found in the Thai soil

Narathiwat police have detained six armed Malaysian commandos who were found straying about five kilometres from the border in Narathiwat province on Monday.

Thai police were alert by local villagers in Sungai Padi district about the presence of the commandos-clad men armed with rifles and machine guns in a rubber field in the district.

Fourth Army Region overseeing the areas sent about 50 soldiers to the site.

Confiscated from them were six rifles, machine guns and rounds of ammunitions. Found with them were canned food and tents.

 A police source quoted one of the men as saying that they just got lost because their radio broke. They said they had no intention to invade into the Thai soil. The men then were brought by a helicopter to a headquarter for further interrogation. 

Investigation into the real intention of the invasion has continued until today.

This is not the first time that the Malaysian soldiers were found in the Thai soil.
