Thailand's Muslim South Hit by Dozens of Bomb Attacks

Thai authorities say suspected Muslim militants have carried out at least 40 bomb and arson attacks in Thailand's Muslim-dominated southern provinces.

Police say at least two people were injured in the attacks, which took place late Tuesday in the provinces of Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat. They say the most serious attack was a fire set at a rubber factory.

The French news agency quotes the region's top military official as saying the situation is under control and that six suspects have been arrested.

More than 1,400 people have been killed during two years of unrest in Thailand's Muslim-majority provinces.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP and AP.
