Two women killed in a bombing at a tea shop (no doubt a tea shop identified as a hotbed of anti-Islamic activity). Two police officers killed elsewhere. Attacks designed to sow terror in the larger population. “Seven Killed by Thai Gunmen,” from World News Australia, with thanks to JE:
Seven people have been shot dead in separate attacks by suspected Islamic militants in Thailand’s restive south.
Six people, including two police officers, were killed in three separate attacks in Yala province, one of three predominantly Muslim provinces in the south.
Another was shot dead in Pattani province.
In Narathiwat province, two Thai women and a Malaysian man were slightly injured when a bomb exploded at a tea shop.
