PATTANI, Thailand - Several bombs have gone of in Thailand's insurgency-plagued south killing one person and wounding dozens in a new wave of violence, the military said on Thursday.
The blasts were in Pattani, one of three Muslim-majority provinces in largely Buddhist Thailand, near the Malaysian border, on Wednesday and Thursday.
Resistance to central government rule has existed for decades in the area but violence picked up significantly in 2004. More than 6,500 people, including Buddhist monks, teachers, troops and separatist insurgents have been killed since then.
At least 10 bombs went off in Pattani's Yaring district, including two at bank cash dispensing machines, wounding 11 policemen.
