One of the three bombs injured 27 people, including a young girl.

Police said the Nakhon Si Thammarat-registered bronze, silver grey Isuzu pickup truck used to conceal the  carbomb that exploded near Oliver Hotel, the first of the three locations hit by the bombers, had been belonged to one of the people slain in an attack in tambon Thakamcham of Pattani's Nong Chik district on Dec 3. It was then stolen.
