Thai marines kill 16 insurgents during shootout

NARATHIWAT, Thailand — Marines fending off a militant assault on their base in Thailand’s violent south killed 16 insurgents in a shoot-out, authorities said Wednesday. It was the deadliest toll the Muslim guerrillas suffered since more than 100 died in a single day nearly a decade ago.

Thailand’s military has struggled to control the insurgency since it flared in the country’s Muslim-majority southernmost provinces in 2004.
