Pattani: The government says bombs concealed in a car and two motorcycles have killed at least three people and wounded at least 30 in a town in Thailand's insurgency-plagued south.

The government's Internal Security Operations Command information center said the bombs were set off Friday evening in the border town of Sungai Kolok.

The attack was one of the biggest since Thailand's new government was installed in August.

More than 4,700 people have been killed in the Muslim-dominated southernmost provinces of Thailand since an Islamist insurgency erupted in 2004. A massive military effort has failed to stop the violence attributed to the secretive insurgents. No one has claimed responsibility for Friday's attack.
