Bombs injure four soldiers and a civilian in southern Thailand
Four soldiers and a civilian bystander were wounded in bomb attacks yesterday in Narathiwat and Pattani provinces.
The attack in Narathiwat targeted a security force escorting teachers. The blast went off about 7:30 a.m. while an 11-man security team was on a routine patrol to protect teachers traveling between their houses and the schools.
In Pattani, two soldiers were slightly injured in a similar roadside bomb attack targeting a security escort for teachers. The bomb went off as a pickup truck carrying six soldiers passed over the planted explosive.
Meanwhile, train services between Yala province and Narathiwat's Sungai Kolok district resumed yesterday after a three days suspension following a bomb attack on Sunday that killed three people and wounded 35 others.
Officials implemented heavy security measures in the wake of the attack. Security forces have been deployed at the stations and along the railway. Helicopters patrolled the route, focusing on certain sections considered vulnerable to
terrorist insurgent attacks.
