Two Thai soldiers have been charged with killing three Muslim civilians in a mountainous pursuit in the southern part of the country, police said.

The announcement was made after the military expressed regret last week for the unarmed killing of civilians and it is a case of mistaken identity in the region.

Countries that have the majority Buddhist population faces a conflict with Malay-Muslim militants in southern Thailand for 15 years fighting for autonomy.

More than 7,000 people were killed, most of them civilians from both religions.

Most cases are rarely investigated but police chief in southern Narathiwat said two militants turned themselves in to the authorities on Monday after the shooting.

Major General Narin Boosaman said the two were charged with murder but were released on bail.

“We will seek information from both sides so that everyone is treated fairly,” he said.
