DTN Thailand: Motorcycle bomb kills 1 in southern Thailand: Muslim separatists are suspected of planting a bomb

PATTANI, Thailand – Muslim separatists are suspected of planting a bomb on a motorcycle that killed one person and wounded 12 others in southern Thailand. Police Col. Kritsada Kaewjandee says the improvised explosive device was detonated Monday afternoon near a supermarket in Yala municipality, about 660 feet (200 meters) away from where a car bomb exploded on Feb. 13, wounding 18 people and setting several commercial buildings ablaze. Last week in neighboring Narathiwat province, suspected Muslim insurgents detonated another car bomb and raked a karaoke restaurant with gunfire, wounding at least 17 people. More than 4,300 people have been killed in Thailand's three southernmost provinces since a Muslim separatist insurgency erupted in 2004.
