Police Defuse Bomb in Southern Thailand - 2004-08-23


Thai police have defused a large bomb in the capital of the southern province of Yala - where three bombings Saturday injured 11 people.

Officials say the bomb was hidden in the fuel tank of a motorcycle parked near a hotel in Yala town.

Thailand's three southern provinces near Malaysia have seen increased violence in recent months. More than 300 people have been killed since January in a spate of attacks blamed largely on a revived Islamic insurgency.

Thailand is mostly Buddhist, but the southern provinces have Muslim majorities. Thai Muslims have complained about unfair treatment by the central government, particularly in jobs and education.
