The motorcycle bomb didn’t set out to kill the boy. Who did it? “Suspected militants,” says AP. Militant about what? Six paragraphs down we learn that there has been an “Islamist insurgency.” “Motorcycle bomb kills 1 boy, wounds 10 in Thailand’s restive south,” from the Associated Press, March 21 (thanks to Twostellas):
HAT YAI, Thailand – Police say suspected militants in Thailand’s insurgency-plagued south have detonated a motorcycle bomb that killed a 9-year-old boy and wounded 10 other people.
Police Col. Tuanday Juthanan said Thursday the insurgents hid an improvised bomb on a motorcycle near a commercial district in the city of Pattani and set it off during lunch break.
He said the explosion killed a 9-year-old boy and wounded 10 other people, all civilians. He said the boy died while being rushed to a nearby hospital.
The explosion also damaged seven cars and three motorcycles that were parked in the area.
Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat are the only Muslim-dominated provinces in the predominantly Buddhist country.
More than 5,000 people have been killed since an Islamist insurgency erupted in the sub-region in 2004.
Killed by what? Or whom?
