Huge car bomb in Pattani (near Hat Yai). The reports say it was aimed at Western Tourists staying at Southern Hotel. Initial reports are that one person was killed, 5 critically injured and 29 injured.
There were two bombs, one at the back of the hotel which didn't kill or injure anyone, however the one at the side of the building caused all of the damage.
The images are very graphic and depict the damage caused.
It six all over the western media. I first saw it on French tv.

Can you be a bit more specific with, "all over the western media" please. I've tried all the usual news sites and have found nothing.

It was in the Mirror online today also.

Edit : I didn't bother posting about it as I thought it was one of the regular bombing/terrorist places down South, not a tourist spot.

I did try 2 of those, and one of the others is not readily available in Thailand. The nearest I was getting was news about a 2014 bomb.

Yes, thanks pharvey, but not being a 3BB subscriber, nor a VPN user, Daily Mail is no good for me - still blocked in Thailand.

Taken from The Daily Mail (UK): -


"A car bomb blast outside a hotel in Thailand has left one dead and 29 injured, it has emerged.
The explosion happened near a hotel in the province of Pattani, an area popular with Western tourists in the country's south.
Pictures have emerged showing the remains of a building and a fire raging inside. The nationality of those caught up in the blast is not yet known.
There are reports that the blast happened near the Southern Hotel in Pattani.
Video purportedly taken at the scene shows men running out of a building and fire crews trying to tackle a blaze.
It comes just days after explosions hit the seaside resort of Hua Hin, killing one Thai woman and one other and wounding 21 people.
The twin bomb attack targeted a busy street filled with bars and restaurants. Hours later two small bombs were detonated in the beach town Patong, Phuket, another area popular with foreign tourists.
In its travel guidance, The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has said there is a 'high threat' from terrorism in the country.
It has also advised against 'all but essential travel to the provinces of Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat and Songkhla on the Thai-Malaysia border'.
In March, at least 10 bombs went off in Pattani's Yaring district, including two at bank cash dispensing machines, wounding 11 policemen.
Pattani is one of three Muslim-majority provinces in largely Buddhist Thailand, near the Malaysian border.
Resistance to central government rule has existed for decades in the area but violence picked up significantly in 2004.
More than 6,500 people, including Buddhist monks, teachers, troops and separatist insurgents have been killed since then."

More follows.

I see the government wasted no time in again making misleading statements about who was or wasn't responsible for the latest bombings:

Some ISPs block the whole site. Some only block "offensive" articles.
