2 killed, 4 injured in violence in southern Thailand

Two people were killed and another four were injured in a new wave of violence in the Muslim-dominated southern Thailand, a local newspaper said on Monday. In Yala’s Krong Pinang district, a district official named Somsak Pakchart was shot dead Sunday afternoon while driving. Also in the province, four soldiers dispatched to inspect a fire at a telephone booth were injured in a bomb explosion on Sunday. The soldiers were checking a burnt-out telephone box alongside the road when the bomb went off. Police believe the telephone booth was set alight by militants in order to lure soldiers into the site. The violence in the kingdom’s three southern border provinces went unabated since early last year and has claimed more than 500 lives so far. Full Story
