Ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra condemned Thailand's new government for implying he was behind bombings in the country's capital that killed three people and wounded almost 40 over the New Year's holiday. Thaksin, in a handwritten letter faxed Tuesday from China and distributed by his lawyer in Thailand, accused the government of interim Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont of unfairly attacking him by saying it suspected that those who lost power when he was deposed in a September coup were behind the violence. He also said he suspected Islamic separatists, who have waged a bloody insurgency in the country's southernmost provinces for the past three years, may have been responsible for the eight small blasts that shattered Sunday night's celebrations.
