A series of coordinated blasts on Tuesday left at least one dead and dozens injured in Thailand's far south, where insurgents operate since 2004, officials said.
At least 15 explosions in Yala left one civilian dead and dozens injured, said the governor of the city, Kris Boonrach, and added that two insurgents were killed by exploding bombs before the time they carried.
"Several bombs exploded. I keep hearing explosions," he told AFP by telephone the police in Yala.
The insurgency has left more than 4,800 dead since January 2004 in this region that was part of Malaysia until the early twentieth century, where insurgent groups fighting the government in Bangkok.
Although the conflict has a political nature, has a religious dimension in a population whose majority belongs to the ethnic Malay Muslim faith and is, unlike the rest of Thailand, mostly Buddhist.
