Bomb attack in Thailand killing at least 6 soldiers

Six soldiers in Thailand have been killed and four others wounded in a roadside bomb explosion in a southern province, reported Press TV on Monday.

The explosion occurred as the soldiers were on a routine patrol in the violence-plagued Pattani Province on Monday, according to district police chief Pruk Liangsukwho.

“It is likely the work of violent groups in the area because this area is a red area,” Pruk said. “We are still checking the scene.”

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the bomb attack.
