Bomb hurts 12 soldiers, 2 civilians in southern Thailand
[Bangkok Post] Twelve soldiers and two civilians, one of them a four-year-old girl, were hurt when a motorcycle bomb exploded on a road in Narathiwat province.

After receiving a report Friday evening, a security team found a military truck with the driver's side destroyed and burst front tires on the road lining an irrigation canal in Sungai Kolok district. Fourteen people were injured, 12 of them soldiers. They were found on the road and in the bed of the truck.

The soldiers were on a mission to replace those on duty at Ban Srayor and Ban Arakarn in Sungai Kolok municipality. About a kilometer from their base, men hiding in the roadside forest detonated the bomb buried on the roadside, injurng them and the father and daughter who were riding behind the truck on a motorcycle.

Police suspect insurgents who had warned about more unrest during the period between Ramadan and Hari Raya might have been responsible for the crime.
