Homemade bomb injures troops, civilians in southern Thailand
Three soldiers and two civilians were injured when a bomb exploded in Narathiwat province yesterday. The home-made bomb, contained in a gas cylinder, had been planted next to the concrete wall of a house owned by the mother of a former mayor of tambon Rueso municipality. The bomb was detonated as a truck with 18 soldiers was passing on patrol.
Meanwhile, earlier yesterday morning, a village leader was gunned down on a road in Pattani province. Nimu Niloh was followed by attackers in a truck. He was driving his motorcycle when his assailants fired at him. He died at the scene.
On Saturday night, one man was gunned down and his two friends were wounded in an ambush in Narathiwat. Abdulloh Muso's motorcycle ran out of gas as he was driving down a local road. He called his friend, Korsem Sa-a to pick him up.
Mr Korsem drove his motorcycle to help Abdulloh and asked a friend, Sakoree Aming to come with him. As the three were heading home, an attacker shot at them from a roadside rubber farm. Abdulloh was killed on the spot while Mr Korsem and Mr Sakoree were injured.
