BANGKOK, Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- A roadside bomb killed a ranger and wounded two others on Tuesday in southern Thailand's Yala province.
The bomb exploded on Tuesday morning when a six-member ranger patrol were passing the spot. The two home-made bombs were hidden in roadside grass.
The blast wave killed a 33-year-old ranger. The other ranger was seriously injured on his face and body. The shrapnel also hurt a woman passing by.
Bomb disposal officers safely destroyed the second bomb later.
Police blamed the insurgents who aim to create unrest in the deep south.
Yala province, together with Narathiwat and Pattani, are the three southernmost provinces in Thailand that have been haunted by insurgency launched by ethnic separatists since 2004. Bomb attacks, gun shots are often reported in the restive area.
