Security has been tightened up at banks, markets, convenience stores and government offices in 12 districts of Thailand’s southern province of Pattani after two explosions, which damaged an ATM in front of a university early this morning (Sunday).

Security officials in the province are blaming separatist insurgents for the attacks in front of Fahlorni University in Ba Sarong and on Road 409 in front of a school in Tambon Napradu in Yarang district between 12.20am and 2am. The perpetrators also burned car tires near the scene of the blast on Road 409.
