And in Thailand

As long as I'm griping about Southeast Asia:

Five soldiers were wounded in a roadside bombing in Narathiwat province on Saturday afternoon.

The bomb was set off when a nine-man security unit (five on a military Humvee and four on two motorcycles) was patroling in Waeng district. The explosion, which destroyed the Humvee and left a crater one meter deep and one meter wide in the road, was caused by explosives hidden in a cooking gas cylinder.

Unlike in Burma, where it was Buddhist on Muslim violence (unusual, eh?), in Thailand it was the usual suspects blowing up the usual victims.
