Bomb In Thailand's Restive South Injures 13, Including 11 Police.

AP via The Star: Eleven policemen and two villagers were injured by a bomb Friday Feb 17 in southern Thailand.

The bombing in Narathiwat appeared to be the latest violence in the country's Muslim-dominated southernmost provinces that has led to about 1,300 deaths in the last two years.

The 5-kilogram [11-pound] bomb, hidden in a fertilizer sack by the side of a road, exploded as police were investigating the shooting of a villager, said police Sub. Lt. Sonphet Tanthi-amonkun.

The victims, including two civilian passers-by on a motorcycle, suffered mild injuries.
