Four killed in Thailand blast
BANGKOK: At least four people were killed and 40 injured when a bomb exploded in the Thai tourist town of Sungai Kolok, bordering Malaysia, police said.
The bomb exploded in Sungai Kolok shortly after Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra left the restive region after a visit to discuss security with Muslim leaders. “There are more than 40 people injured, three of them in operation rooms now. There are four people killed,” a medical official in the town said. Police said the bomb exploded behind a hotel on a street boasting a strip of bars and nightclubs. reuters
