NARATHIWAT, Oct 21 – Two bombs kill one soldier, injure seven others in Narathiwat’s Bacho district.

The bomb exploded around 8.30 am on a road when an armored Humvee, carrying four soldiers, was passing.

The explosion caused the vehicle to lose balance and it was hurled off the road. PO1 Issarawut Ponlasak, the driver, died at the scene, while three others who were wounded were rushed to the hospital.

Pieces of a remote controlled bomb, placed in cooking gas cylinder and buried underground, were found.
