Capt. Prasobchoke Trakoon-in of the Yaha district police station in Yala province said assailants detonated one bomb as a team of paramilitary Rangers passed on a road. After more security personnel arrived about 20 minutes later, a second bomb exploded. Police Lance Cpl. Yutthanakorn Kunsadub said most of the wounded were bomb disposal officers.

More than 6,500 people have been killed since a Muslim separatist insurgency flared in Thailand’s three southernmost provinces of Yala, Pattani, and Narathiwat in 2004. Recent cease-fire talks between the government and some separatist factions have made little progress. — Khao Sod
