Bombs Explode in Thailand, One Dead at Airport

Two bombs exploded in southern Thailand today. One of the bombs exploded at the ticket counter of Hat Yai international airport, killing one person and seriously injuring 20 others. The airport was a popular starting place for tourists exploring that part of the country. At this time, it has not been closed, but flights have been delayed to Bangkok.

Hat Yai, the largest city in the region and its commercial capital, has a large Muslim population. Muslims recently have rebelled against the Thai government, and five days ago an Indonesian Muslim group was trying to broker a peace deal between the government and Muslims in the region. 630 people so far have died in the uprisings since 2004.
