YALA: Two Malaysians were injured when a car bomb exploded outside the Holiday Hill Hotel in Betong town in Yala province, southern Thailand, on Friday.
According to Betong mayor Somyod Lertlamyong, the two Malaysians – a 28-year-old man and a senior citizen in his 60s – were among 36 people injured in the blast.
“The 28-year-old man received outpatient treatment and went home on the same day while the other man is still in the hospital,” he said, on Saturday.
Somyod added that two Thai nationals, a woman and a man aged 23 and 28 respectively, were killed in the bombing. Thai news reports have identified the victims as Pennapa Tunhor and Decha Daliyoh respectively.
Friday’s blast is being blamed on separatists who’ve waged a decade-long campaign against the Thai state.
