Bomb blast at Hat Yai airport kills 2 people

Blast at check-in counters was one of two in the city that left 30 injured

 

April 4, 2005

The Straits Times

BANGKOK - TWO BOMBS exploded almost simultaneously at an airport and a supermarket in Hat Yai in Thailand's restive Muslim south yesterday, killing at least two people and wounding more than 30.

 

Initial reports varied as to the number of casualties, but provincial governor Somporn Chaibongyang was quoted as saying two people were killed and at least 15 injured at Hat Yai airport.

 

Witnesses said the explosion at the airport occurred near the check-in counters and that all departing flights were cancelled. However, an airport official later said that departures were continuing.

 

 

Mr Somporn said five other people were hurt by a bomb at the Carrefour supermarket in town.

 

An unconfirmed report by the Thai ITV network said two people were killed at the store, which is part of a French-owned chain.

 

A Hat Yai hospital official said they were treating more than 30 wounded from the two bomb attacks.

 

Airport driver Purich Raebenmud said he saw 20 people wounded, including his friend whose legs had been blown off.

 

Police said a third bomb was detonated in Songkhla, 40km north of Hat Yai, but there were no immediate reports of casualties.

 

Police said the Songkhla bomb had been placed on a motorcycle in front of the Dream World Hotel and was detonated by remote control about 8.30pm.

 

A police officer, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the blast occurred at about the same time as the one at the airport.

 

General Chaiyasit Shinawatra, the military supreme commander, confirmed the bombings and said security officials had been put on high alert because of intelligence reports that a car bomb might be set off.

 

No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks.

 

Hat Yai is the biggest city in the far south of Thailand, which has been wracked by violence since January last year, with shootings and bombings carried out by suspected Muslim separatists.

 

Yesterday's explosions came just two days after a team from the world's largest Islamic group, the Indonesia-based Nahdlatul Ulama, wrapped up a five-day mission to the region aimed at mediating between the gahment and militants.

 

Last week, Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, amid criticism that the gahment's heavy-handed tactics were fomenting unrest, raised the possibility that the security presence in the south may be scaled back.

 

In what was seen as another attempt to allay a sense of injustice felt by many Muslims in the south, he has now promised that suspected militants being held without conclusive evidence would be released.

 

'I have ordered the authorities not to charge detainees without solid evidence and not to do so by concocting fraudulent evidence,' he said during his weekly radio address. 'Set them free if we have nothing to charge them with.'

 

Indictments of local Muslims deemed unjust by residents may have contributed to the perpetuation of violence in the restive region.

 

Mr Thaksin also stressed that all police and court proceedings must be handled in accordance with the Constitution. 'Of course, we will have to bring wrongdoers to justice, but we must do so under the rule of law,' he said.

 

Lieutenant-General Manote Kraiwong, commander of the 9th Police Region, reacted quickly to the Premier's remarks. He has ordered his lieutenants to review all cases under the police region's jurisdiction.

 

There are no official figures about detainees being held illegally and Lt-Gen Manote declined to say how many cases must be reviewed.

FYI.

 

Straits Times - April 5, 2005

Violence in Thai south spreads

 

3 attacks on Sunday

3 yesterday

Hat Yai (THAILAND) - REBELS carried out three more attacks in Thailand's southern provinces yesterday, as violence in the region spread and escalated.

 

In separate attacks, a police station and gahment office in Narathiwat province were fired on.

 

The assaults followed a bomb blast that injured four Thai soldiers earlier the same day in neighbouring Yala province, and one day after two people were killed in a trio of bombings in Songkhla province.

 

The assaults in Narathiwat were carried out by two groups of about 10 attackers each. The first attacked the police station with a grenade launcher. The second group attacked the district's administrative office, Police Colonel Thanongsak Wangsupah said.

 

He said no one was hurt in either of the attacks in Joh Irong district. Police and soldiers were hunting the attackers, who escaped to the forest on a nearby mountain, he added.

 

In Yala, a soldier was seriously injured in the blast, which went off in a car park at a technical college where an army car was parked.

 

Yesterday's attacks came after two people died and scores were hurt in bomb attacks on Sunday at Hat Yai airport, French-owned Carrefour supermarket in the city and a hotel in Songkhla city.

 

There were conflicting reports about injuries in the attacks, which sparked fears that insurgents were broadening their operations.

 

The Nation newspaper cited officials as saying the injured included six foreigners - a British woman, a French woman, two Brunei citizens and two Malaysians.

 

But a Health Ministry official told AFP only four foreigners were hurt - an American, a French teenage boy, and two Brunei nationals.

 

An airport attack suspect was caught on security camera, the air force head said yesterday.

 

'We have a picture of a suspect from a closed-circuit television camera,' Air Chief Marshal Kongsak Vantana told reporters.

 

He gave no more details, but The Nation cited military supreme commander Chaiyasit Shinawatra as saying a man left the bomb in a bag in the waiting area.

 

Police said the bomb at Dream World hotel in Songkhla city was in a motorcycle in front of the building, according to The Nation.

 

Police had cordoned off the part of the Carrefour store damaged in Sunday's third attack. The retail giant said the store would remain closed yesterday, and that security would be increased.

 

Thai officials yesterday vowed to boost airport security to levels already in force in Bangkok.

 

'The air force will cooperate with the aviation department and the airport authority of Thailand to strengthen measures to provide security for airports, especially in Chiang Mai, Hat Yai and Phuket where there are many tourists,' Air Chief Marshal Kongsak said.

 

Hat Yai, a regional commercial centre in Songkhla province, was previously spared most of the near-daily violence that has marked the insurgency in the south. It has claimed more than 630 lives since January last year.

 

General Winai Phattiyakul, National Security Council secretary-general, said intelligence had indicated that airports, including Hat Yai, could be attacked.

 

'The incident showed that security measures were weak,' he told reporters. -- AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE, ASSOCIATED PRESS
