FAR EAST CORRESPONDENT — Bombings in Southern Thailand on Saturday killed thirteen people and wounded over 300 in the cities of Yala and Hat Yai. The series of explosions targeted civilians in popular shopping districts, a McDonalds restaurant, and a tourist hotel.
These bombings follow close on the heels of February’s much less destructive but widely reported Bangkok bombings, which were likely orchestrated by Iranian nationals. Faine Greenwood writes for the UN Dispatch.
