BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thai police killed four suspected Muslim separatists after raiding the hideout of an insurgent group operating in Thailand's restive south, police said on Thursday.

Thailand is predominantly Buddhist but parts of the south are majority Muslim. A low-level insurgency in the region has claimed more than 6,000 lives since January 2004 when resistance to Buddhist rule resurfaced violently.
