A Buddhist temple was fired at allegedly by insurgents on Wednesday night but no one was injured, police said.

Police said Wat Thep Nimit in Moo 5 village in Tambon Ban Klang in Panare district was fired at about 10 times.

Pattani police chief Maj Gen Piyawat Chalermsri said officers checked the scene after being informed of the shooting but none of five monks living there was injured.

Police said the bullets hit two rubber trees in the temple's compound.

Villagers said they heard some 10 gunshots.

On January 18, insurgents attacked a temple in Narathiwat's Sungai Padi district, killing two monks.
