Bombs Kill One, Wound Nearly 30

Police in Thailand's restive south say a series of bombs has killed one person and wounded nearly 30 others, including several soldiers.

Authorities say a civilian was killed today (Friday) when two bombs exploded just minutes apart in Narathiwat province. At least 23 other people were wounded in those explosions.

Also today, a roadside explosion in the same province wounded at least five soldiers.

Narathiwat province is one of three mainly Muslim provinces in southern Thailand, where an insurgency has killed more than 18-hundred people since 2004.

Thailand's military-installed prime minister, Surayud Chulanont, has vowed to restore peace in the region.
