Roadside bomb leaves 17 injured in south Thailand

BANGKOK -- Seventeen people including 10 women paramilitary troops and a civilian were injured in a roadside bombing in Thailand's insurgency-plagued south, local police said Monday.

The blast targeted Thai security personnel on their way back from guard duties at an annual fair in Pattani town just after midnight.

The device, which was concealed in a gas canister, was detonated when the military vehicle stopped at traffic lights, injuring 15 troops and a security volunteer. A local man traveling in a pick-up truck was also hurt.

Police said none of the victims were seriously injured.

A shadowy insurgency, without clearly stated aims, has raged in Thailand's three southernmost provinces — Pattani, Narathiwat and Yala — since 2004.
