Political reminder : New government = 2 bombs in the south

A crual political reminder. Just before the government composition was officially announced, 2 bomb attacks occured in the South. 1 killed and 11 wounded.

YALA

Four were injured when a bomb exploded in front a hotel in this southern border province Saturday evening.

Police said the explosion occurred at 6:30 pm in front of the Park View Hotel in Yala downtown.

Police said a homemade bomb hidden inside a pick-up truck exploded partially apparently because part of the circuit failed to be ignited. (Nation)

PATTANI

A bomb exploded in front of a department store in this southern border province at 6:10 pm Saturday, killing one person and injuring seven others.

Police said insurgents hid a five-kilogramme homemade bomb inside a motorcycle and parked it in front of the Pattani Supermarket and detonated it with a mobile phone. (Nation)

It can’t be a coincidence. Even though the level of violence has been reduced, the conflict in the South is still a burning political issue. Another one that the new Prime Minister Abhisit will have to handle.
