10 injured in Thailand bombings
Sunday 24 February 2013
Suspected insurgents have detonated two bombs that wounded 10 people and staged a series of minor attacks in nearly 30 spots in Thailand's violence-plagued south, police said.
Col Tongsuk Jaranpong said the militants set off an improvised bomb in a rubbish bin in the city of Pattani last night.
The explosion slightly wounded three police officers who had been called to inspect a suspicious item.
Tongsuk said seven civilian security officers suffered minor injuries in another explosion in Pattani yesterday while travelling in a pickup truck.
He said today the insurgents also burned tyres and set buildings on fire in 29 different locations across Pattani province.
More than 5,000 people have been killed in Thailand's southernmost provinces since an Islamist insurgency erupted in 2004.
