Many Injured After Bomb Explodes Outside Supermarket In Thailand



A bomb has exploded outside a department store in a coastal area of Thailand causing multiple injuries. The blasts happened at the Big-C shopping centre in the town of Pattani.

The area has been popular with western tourists in the past but has been targeted by a number of attacks recently.


Up to 20 people are thought to have been injured following the blast.

Pramote Prom-in, a spokesman for the Thai military in the area, said the suspected car bomb had exploded at the entrance of the Big-C supermarket.




"The explosion wounded about 20 people," he said. No deaths had been reported, he added.

Dramatic pictures from the scene show a number of people injured outside with smoke billowing from the building.

The incident appears to be the latest attack by Muslim separatists in the south of the predominantly Buddhist country.
