Two people were killed and 18 others were wounded in a series of blasts
in the southern province of Pattani, Thailand on February 16

An explosion at a supermarket in the heart
of the township killed one security officer and injured many other
people, reported local police.

The unrest started on February 16 when three bombs exploded in public areas of the district.

According to police, the incident might be the retaliatory attack of
rebel gunmen in southern Thailand after an unsuccessful assault on
military barracks three days earlier.

Since 2004,
over 5,500 people have been killed in rebel attacks in Thailand ’s
southern provinces near the Malaysian border
