Twin Blasts rock Thai City

Post  Panda on Sat 31 Mar - 17:38



(CNN) -- At least 10 people were killed and more than 100 wounded following a pair of explosions Saturday in the southern Thai city of Yala, Thai media reported.

The two blasts were the result of bombs stashed in stolen trucks, Police Lt. Gen. Paitoon Chuchaiya told CNN affiliate MCOT.

Video from the scene showed damage to buildings, cars and motorcycles on the street.

The blasts set fires to nearby vehicles, including a van, which itself exploded, leading to initial reports of a third bomb, Chuchaiya said.

Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said she has been informed of the Yala bombings and has instructed national police chief Gen. Prewpan Dhamapong to investigate the crime scene immediately, according to MCOT. Police investigators believe suspected insurgents are behind the attacks, MCOT said.

Last month, a series of bombs detonated in Bangkok. No one was killed in those blasts, and an Iranian suspect was arrested in connection with the incident.

There have been people killed in Mombasa too when a hand grenade was thrown into a restaurant, also people killed in Mtwapa a little way out of Mombasa. Again, the vast majority of people are extremely friendly, especially to tourists, they are very poor people and they really want your money, who can blame them? There is however a very big difference between seeing a country as a tourist and actually living in that country as a resident. It really isn't a pleasant world right now and it doesn't seem to be improving.
