A reporter was killed and at least 20 other people wounded when a bomb exploded Thursday night in Thailand's southern border town of Sungai Golok, police said. The bomb, hidden in a car, was detonated after police, reporters and onlookers were lured to the scene by an earlier smaller bomb on a motorcycle that exploded without hurting anyone, according to police officials. The reporter who was killed worked for the country's biggest newspaper, Thai Rath, said Thai TV Channel 9, whose own reporter was also seriously injured. Also among the wounded, who included civilians, was the town's police chief, police said. More than 3,000 people have been killed in Thailand's predominantly Muslim southern provinces since early 2004, when a separatist movement flared after a lull of more than two decades.
