Two bombs exploded in Muang district of Pattani just before dawn on Thursday, one putside the Diana Department Store and the other at a Toyota showroom, but there were no reports of casualties.
Police in Muang district said they received a call at 4.40am that a bomb had exploded in front of the department store. An Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) team was sent, and found the bomb had gone off in a trash bin at the entrance of the department store.
While surveying the scene, the team found a gas cylinder, possibly a second explosive, at the stairs of a Toyota showroom about 200 metres from the Diana story. The team backed away and tried to remove the bomb with a hook, but it blew up during the retrieval process.
