Jihadists Stike Thailand

BBC reports a series of bombings has occurred in Southern Thailand:
A series of bombs have exploded in the southern Thai town of Hat Yai, in the province of Songkhla, killing at least two people and injuring dozens.

Thai media reported that the bombs, hidden in motorcycles, were triggered by mobile phones at 21:15 local time.

The bombs, two placed at separate department stores and a third near a hotel, exploded simultaneously.
I wonder if the bombers might have been affiliated with that religion ... you know, the one that does all the bombings everywhere nowdays?
Parts of the southern province are under martial law as authorities struggle with Islamist rebels.

Police and media reports suggested that at least 30 people were injured during the explosions, which took place in busy shopping districts in the city.

"We do believe that the insurgents are responsible for the bombs attacks," a military spokesman said. "Their intention is to spread fear in the region."

That's about as direct as BBC will get before the courts finish their work, so I'd say yes, the Religion of Peace has struck again.
