Roadside bomb fails to harm police patrol in southern Thailand
[The Nation] Policemen on school security patrol in Narathiwat’s Tak Bai district narrowly escaped harm on Thursday morning when a roadside bomb exploded near them. Only the wooden planks of a curbside stall prevented serious injury.

A six-man team in an armored truck and two motorcycles had just passed when rebels in hiding detonated the bomb planted under the stall. Inspecting the scene, police found a three-inch-deep, 12-inch-wide crater and fragments of a 1kg bomb scattered through the area.

Ethnic Malay Muslim insurgents are suspected of detonating the bomb.
