Police officer car bomb explosion in Thailand, killed one, wounded three

A bomb attached to the bottom of a car belonging to a police officer detonated Wednesday, in Thailand's insurgency-plagued south, killing one passenger and wounding three others.

The bomb was made and set by suspected Islamic rebels exploded as the car approached a checkpoint in Narathiwat province's Tak Bai district, said police Sgt. Seksan Waeduramae, the vehicle's owner and driver. A female passenger was killed and her husband seriously wounded by the blast, which badly damaged the vehicle.

Seksan received seven stitches to his head, while his wife, who was also in the car, suffered minor injuries to her torso.

"It was a terrifying incident. A big bang came from underneath my car while I was approaching the checkpoint," he told The Associated Press. "I think the insurgents planned to kill me and officers at the checkpoint."

It was unclear when the bomb, believed to have been triggered by a mobile phone signal, was attached to Seksan's car.

Suspected Muslim insurgents have carried out almost daily bombings and shootings since January last year, when separatists launched a campaign of violence against predominantly Buddhist Thailand's central government, reports the AP.
