Pattani, Thailand – A bomb killed two policemen and wounded four other officers Saturday in Thailand’s violence-wracked Narathiwat province where separatists had vowed to disrupt the New Year festivities.

The bomb exploded in a crowded open market in Sungaipadi district of Narathiwat, 750 kilometres south of Bangkok, at 7:50 am (0050 GMT), while police were trying to defuse the device, police said.

Four civilians were also wounded by the blast, believed to have been detonated by a mobile phone, said deputy commander of the southern region unit Police Lieutenant General Suprukchai Anekwiang.
