• Bomb attack kills 4 in S Thailand


    BANGKOK: Four people were killed and four injured in a bomb blast in Thailand’s restive deep south, police said Friday, the latest unrest in a region wracked by a violent insurgency for more than a decade. The explosion hit a checkpoint in Khok Pho district of Pattani province on Thursday evening, killing four Buddhist men aged between 43 and 54. More than 6,400 people have been killed in the conflict — the majority civilians — since 2004. The rebels routinely launch attacks on security forces and have terrorized civilians seen as sympathetic to the Buddhist-majority state — both Buddhist and Muslim.
