Roadside bombs kills six soldiers in south Thailand

  • The remains of a pickup and crater left after a powerful bomb exploded Monday under a rural road in the southern border province of Pattani

The bomb hit the pick-up as it was carrying ten soldiers along a dirt road in Pattani province, leaving a pile of rubble and twisted vehicle parts.

A roadside bomb blast in Thailand has killed six soldiers and wounded four more in the insurgency-plagued south.

The Muslim-majority border region has been racked by violence for over a decade as ethnic Malay insurgents battle the government of Buddhist-majority Thailand for more autonomy.

Ten soldiers were patrolling on the pickup when the bomb, hidden beneath the road in a drainage pipe, exploded just before noon in Pattani's Thung Yang Daeng district, according to a local police officer who did not give his name because he was not authorized to talk to the media.
