Bombings in southern Thailand kill 3, wound dozens

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.
