One killed, 30 wounded by explosions in southern Thailand


One Thai person was killed and 30 wounded when two bombs exploded last evening, near a hotel in the southern Thai beach town of Pattani.

The first blast in a parking lot behind the Southern Hotel caused no casualties, and the 2nd explosion came from a truck parked at the hotel entrance, opposite a karaoke bar and a massage parlour, resulting in 1 death and 30 injuries.

The blasts came less than 2 weeks after a series of explosions hit 3 of Thailand's most popular tourist resorts and a town in the south of the country, killing 4 people and wounding dozens.
