A bomb went off on a village road in Yala's Muang district Wednesday, injuring two defence volunteers, police said. 

Suthep Chanwanno, 30, and Pinyo Khonthon, 38, were wounded by shrapnel when a three-kilogramme explosive device exploded in tambon Yupo.

The pair was among eight defence volunteers on their way to escort teachers to school. A bomb was planted behind a pile of bricks and detonated when the defence volunteers were riding past it on their motorcycles.
