Roadside bomb attack injures a defence volunteer

One defense volunteer was injured on Wednesday when a roadside bomb went off as security officials were on a patrol to give protection to a team of explosive ordnance disposal inspecting a suspicious object near the scene.

The explosion happened in front of Ban Sakor school in Tambon Tasab of Yala Muang district.

A team of defence volunteers was on a routine patrol to give protection to teachers when a suspicious object was sighted.

As an EOD team arrived to inspect the object, a hidden bomb planted by the roadside was then detonated, injuring one volunteer.
