Thai Jihad Update from the TimesOnline, with thanks to JE:
Forty-one bombs exploded within less than half an hour, killing two people and wounding 16, across southern Thailand today.
One of the homemade devices went off at government offices in Yala minutes before Deputy Prime Minister Chitchai Wannasathit was due to arrive for an official visit.
The attacks are believed to have been carried out by Muslim insurgents who have mounted a long-running but largely hidden campaign for independence of the country’s three most southern provinces.
The blasts went off between 8.30am and 9am local time, as people headed to work in the three Muslim-majority regions of Narathiwat, Pattani and Yala, said government officials. Both fatalities occurred in the Pattani province….
More than 1,300 people have been killed since violence flared in early 2004.
