One killed and 30 injured two weeks after a series of explosions hit three of Thailand’s most popular tourist spots . The first blast in a parking lot behind the Southern Hotel caused no casualties, Police Lieutenant Colonel Winyu Tiamraj told Reuters on Wednesday. All the casualties were Thais. The second explosion came from a truck parked at the hotel entrance, opposite a karaoke bar and a massage parlour, resulting in one death and 30 injuries,” he said. A staff member at the town’s hospital said 32 people were injured, 5 of them critically. All are Thai nationals .

The blasts came less than two weeks after a series of explosions hit three of Thailand’s most popular tourist resorts and a town in the south of the country, killing four people and wounding dozens. Most embassies warn nationals against all travel to Pattani because of the long-running conflict between the Buddhist-majority state and shadowy Muslim rebels seeking greater autonomy.
