On the eve of Thailand's national elections, insurgents carried off deadly attacks south of Bangkok yesterday, including a spectacular car bomb that exploded just as police tried to defuse it.
A member of the Thai bomb squad approached one of the bomb-rigged cars in Narathiwat province after a second car, three yards away had detonated, wounding a soldier.
The officer, who was wearing a protective suit, was attempting to open the front passenger door of the parked car when the bomb exploded.
Authorities arrived at the scene after receiving a tip-off about the abandoned car, which was left in a no-parking zone.
The bomb disposal expert despite being lawn away nearly 10-meters by the explosion, picked himself up and walked away. He was treated for minor injuries.
Authorities said the bomb was triggered by remote from someone near the scene.
