Motorcycle Bomb Wounds 30 in Thai Muslim South

A bomb hidden in a motorcycle exploded outside a hotel in Thailand’s largely Muslim south wounding about 30 people, including Malaysian tourists, a police spokesman said on Saturday. He told Reuters the bomb exploded outside a bar and hotel in Sunghai Golok district of Narathiwat province, which has been under martial law since an armed raid in January on an army camp in the region in which many weapons were stolen. State radio said one person had died in the blast when the motorcycle parked outside the Top Ten karaoke bar next to the Marina Hotel in the border town popular with Malaysian tourists, but police on the spot said there were no deaths. At least two of the wounded were seriously injured and there were several Malaysians in the Top Ten bar, police spokesman Champol Chaiyadej said from the scene, but it was not immediately clear how many tourists were wounded.
