Three people, including a three-year-old boy, were injured when a 30-kilogram bomb hidden in a motorcycle went off in front of Mayor Hospital in the southern border province of Pattani on Sunday morning, police said. 

Pol Col Kong-ath Suwankham, the Mayor district police chief, said a hospital employee phoned the police after he saw a suspicious man parking a motorbike with a side car outside the hospital. The man, who wore a helmet and a black shirt, then rushed to another motorbike and fled.

According to the witness, he heard a loud explosion just under 10 minutes after he made the phone call.
