Pipe bomb hurled at Narathiwat Army post
Security personnel in the deep South escaped injury early Tuesday when an attacker riding a motorcycle threw a pipe bomb at an Army post in Narathiwat’s Tak Bai district.
Malay Muslim insurgents are blamed for the 5.30am attack, in which the bomb exploded against the wall of a restroom rather than inside soldiers’ sleeping quarters.
The post is in the village of Puyu in Tambon Koh Sathon.
Witnesses said two insurgents appeared on a motorcycle and the pillion rider threw the bomb before they drove off.
