Suspected southern insurgents set fire to a petrol pump at a service station in Than To district of the southern province of Yala on Saturday night. There were no casualties.
Than To police said that, shortly before midnight last night, an explosion was heard at the PTT station on Road 410 in Than To sub-district. Police were dispatched to the scene to investigate.
They found a pump on fire and alerted the fire brigade. It took about half an hour before the fire was brought under control, but the pump was destroyed.
The service station was cordoned off, to allow members of an explosive ordnance disposal (EOD) unit to search the area for any concealed explosive devices. None were found.
