Thailand bombing: More explosions quake southern Thailand

Thailand bombing: More explosions rock southern Thailand

A series of blasts have hit southern Thailand, hours after two bombs killed one and injured 19 in a seaside resort town.

Late on Thursday twin blasts killed a local food vendor in the popular tourist town of Hua Hin, near the capital Bangkok.

On Friday, the town was hit again by at least one blast at the clock tower.

Another bomb went off in the popular beach resort of Patong, on the island of Phuket

At least three people have been killed and dozens injured across Thailand in Friday’s blasts.

It comes as Thais celebrate a long weekend for Queen Sirikit’s birthday.

No group has said they carried out the attack. But suspicion will probably fall on separatist insurgents who have been waging an armed campaign against the Thai military in the three southernmost provinces.
