YALA, Thailand - Suspected separatist rebels killed three soldiers and four policemen in two powerful bombings in southern Thailand on Saturday as violence intensified in the restive region bordering Malaysia.

The troops were killed instantly and two were seriously wounded when a remotely detonated bomb exploded under their vehicle in Yala province, police said.

About 40 minutes later, in neighboring Pattani province, another device buried under a tree was triggered before a soccer game between police and villagers.

The blast killed four policemen and wounded at least seven others, including civilians, who were all playing in the match.
