Soldier escorting teachers wounded in roadside bombing in Thailand
Last Updated(Beijing Time):2006-09-05 12:55
One Royal Thai Army solider escorting teachers was wounded in a roadside bombing in Thai southern border province Narathiwat Monday morning, while almost all banks have reopened for business in nearby Yala province, recovering from the Aug. 31 coordinated bank bombings.

A roadside bomb was set-off by a cell phone as six military men were escorting a group of teachers to Banprakpla School in Takbai district, Narathiwat province Monday morning and injured Private Adirek Jaichuay, who suffered shrapnel wounds on his face and torso. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The teachers and other soldiers in the escort unit survived the bombing unscathed.

Meanwhile, all commercial banks in nearby province Yala are opened Monday, except for the Islamic Bank of Thailand branch in the city, which is still under repairs for extensive damage from last week's bombings.

Customers returned to use bank services as usual on Monday, but bags and parcels are being inspected by soldiers at entry, as part of tightened security.

Over 1,300 people, including teachers, officials, military men and civilians, have been killed in bombings and shootings since the insurgent violence erupted in January 2004 in Thailand's three southernmost provinces of Yala, Pattani and Narathiwat.
