The attackers, in the province of Yala, also used explosives and scattered nails on roads to delay pursuers.

Colonel Pramote Prom-in, the spokesman for the army, said on Wednesday that "12 were killed at the scene, two more died at the hospital and one died this morning". Five others were wounded, he told AFP news agency, adding that the attackers took M-16 rifles and shotguns from the checkpoint.

"This is likely the work of the insurgents," he told Reuters news agency. "This is one of the biggest attacks in recent times."
