Two Bombing Incidents in Southern Thailand
By: Talk Bangkok
Despite an agreement of non-violence between the Thai government and the BRN separatist movement, two bombs went off in the south of Thailand, reports the New Straits Times.

The first incident was a 1-kilogram homemade bomb in Yala, which detonated near a roadside post and injured one ranger. It is believed the bomb was triggered by remote control.

The second bomb was detonated in Narathiwat in which a 7-kilogram bomb was detonated and injured two rangers and damaged an armored vehicle. The second explosion resulted in a brief shootout.

The Thai government believes that the BRN was not responsible for the bombs but rather that it was a splinter group of the separatist movement.
