SONGKHLA — Eight people including two schoolchildren were injured by shrapnel when a roadside bomb exploded near a public park in the Sabayoi district of Thailand’s southern province of Songkhla today.
Others who were injured were the Sabayoi district assistant chief, a defence volunteer and villagers.
It is believed that southern insurgents detonated the device when a converted pickup truck passed the spot. The blast blew the vehicle off the road, according to a report from Thai PBS World.
A clash was also reported between officials and suspected insurgents, but no further details were available at the time of this report.
