NARATHIWAT, Thailand Four soldiers were killed and another four seriously injured while attempting to defuse a bomb at an army base in Thailand’s unrest-plagued south on Monday, police said.
The blast happened after troops moved the device, which was hidden in a gas tank and placed under a bridge, to a base in Narathiwat, one of several provinces in southern Thailand where a bloody nine-year insurgency has claimed thousands of lives.
“They were inspecting and defusing the civilian-made bomb” when it exploded, said local police lieutenant colonel Sanit Suwanno.
More than 5,500 people have been killed in Thailand’s Muslim-majority south since 2004, with shadowy insurgent groups blamed for near-daily bombings and shootings.
