SCHOOL BOMB IN THAI SOUTH KILLS TWO

0

BANGKOK: A twin bomb blast struck a school in insurgency-plagued southern Thailand on Tuesday, killing two soldiers and injuring one student in a new setback to peace efforts. Education workers, and the troops who guard them, are a top target for Muslim militants who have waged a nine-year-old campaign of violence that has left thousands of people dead. Authorities said that militants behind Tuesday’s attack planted a first bomb to lure soldiers and then detonated a second device after they arrived at the scene.
