A total of 102 incidents of unrest struck the four southern border provinces on Friday morning, Internal Security Operations Command (Isoc) deputy spokesman Pramote Prom-in said.
Col Pramote said bombs and suspicious objects were planted in many areas, and insurgents were thought to be to blame. Thai flags were also burned and Malaysian flags hoisted to mark the 55th anniversary of the founding of the Bersatu separatist movement, an umbrella group active in the far South, and Malaysia's National Day, Aug 31.
There were 44 incidents in eight districts of Narathiwat, 34 in Yala's Muang, Yaha and Bannang Sata districts, 12 in Pattani's Muang and Yarang districts, and another 12 in southern Songkhla.
