At least one people died and 14 others were injured in several bomb attacks in Thailand’s southern province of Yala on April 6.

Spokesperson of the Thai Army Prom-in said that the four almost simultaneous explosions rocked Yala and damaged tens of nearby buildings.

Police and soldiers have been deployed around the attack sites to hunt for perpetrators.

Thai authorities said more than 6,000 people have died in near-daily shootings and bomb attacks in the Thai southern provinces of Yala, Pattani and Narathiwat since violence broke out a decade ago.

The blasts came at a time when tens of thousands of Thailand’s United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) members, or the Red Shirts, are gathering to show their support for caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

It is considered the largest rally by the Red Shirts since the country’s political crisis began several months ago.

In addition to pressure from the opposition camp, PM Yingluck is also facing accusation of dereliction of duty in running a rice-pledging scheme by the country’s National Anti-Corruption Commission.-VNA
