Two territorial defence volunteers were injured by a bomb explosion in southern Thailand on Tuesday morning. Defense volunteer Yuharee Walong, 28, was only slightly wounded, while Esor Lateh, 57, was critically injured.
The bomb explosion took place on a local road in the Cho-airong district of Narathiwat province, according to police. Walong said he was riding pillion on a motorcycle driven by Lateh, returning home after escort duty, when a bomb hidden on the roadside exploded. Police say separatist militants are responsible for the blast.
