PATTANI: A time bomb found in a drinking bottle attached to a bicycle was defused by a bomb squad in tambon Moh Mawee, Yarang district, on Wednesday morning, and two people were shot dead overnight in neighbouring Narathiwat province.
Bomb experts and local police were informed about 8am that a road bike had been left parked in a vilage in suspicious circumstances.
The bike was a Scotch brand Shark series machine. It was first left in front of a house in Ban Ton Makham village. A worried resident later moved it to nearby Ton Makham mosque.
An examination of the bicycle found a time bomb hidden inside the drinking bottle attached to the frame.
The road bike was of the same series and brand as those found with bombs attached to them in several locations in three districts of Pattani on Sunday. The bombers had dressed as cyclists.
In Narathiwat, Nirorsuelee Waesalae, 24, and Soreeheem Samee were shot dead in Ban Inor village of Si Sakhon district about 11.30pm on Tuesday. No other details were released.
