The explosions occurred in Pattani, a coastal town that is no stranger to attacks from Thailand’s Muslim insurgency, in which at least 5,000 people have died in the country since 2004.
The first blast occurred in the parking lot by the Southern Hotel, Reuters reports. Police said that the second explosion, in which one Thai person was killed, “came from a truck parked at the hotel entrance, opposite a karaoke bar and a massage parlor.” All of the injured were Thai nationals.
Like the explosions on Aug. 11, which killed four people, no group or individual claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s attack. Both appeared to target tourist locales. Some experts have ventured that the attacks evoke the tactics of the country’s southern separatist insurgency.
