A bomb exploded in front of a crowded teashop in restive southern Thailand, killing one woman and wounding 28 other people, police and a hospital official said. The bomb was hidden in a bag and placed inside a telephone booth Friday in front of a busy teashop in Yala city, capital of the province of the same name, said police Lt. -Col. Jirasit Lomae. The victims were taken to Yala Hospital, where the names of the wounded were being gathered, hospital employee Kallaya Thongthachu said by telephone. The bombing appeared to be the latest attack by Islamic insurgents, whose activities have led to more than 2,200 deaths since January 2004.
