`Two dead, 27 injured in twin bombings in Thai south`

Two bomb attacks in Thailand`s insurgency-plagued south today killed two people and wounded another 27, including three seriously, police said.



Yala: Two bomb attacks in Thailand`s insurgency-plagued south today killed two people
and wounded another 27, including three seriously, police said.

The first blast went off in Yala, the main town in the province of the same name, at 10:15 am (local time) in front of a car showroom, wounding eight people.

The second exploded nearby around ten minutes later, injuring rescue workers and police who had come to investigate the first attack, police said, blaming suspected Islamic
insurgents for the bombings.
More than 4,100 people have died during a six-year anti-government insurgency across the south, led by a shadowy mix of Islamist and separatist militants who never publicly
state their goals.

Militias and security forces in the region have been accused of widespread abuses by rights groups.
The region was an autonomous Malay Muslim sultanate until it was annexed in 1902 by mainly Buddhist Thailand and tensions have bubbled there ever since, escalating into the
current insurgency in January 2004.
