Southern link in Thailand`s breathtaking bombings

According to the reporters, not less than a fortnight since anonymous assailants carried out lethal bombing attacks across seven southern Thai provinces, authorities have not yet provided a coherent narrative for who was behind the killings and destructions, and whether the country`s crucial tourism industry is at risk of a repeat attack.

It had been denied by the junta officials that Muslims insurgents active in the country`s southernmost provinces were responsible, there is still scant evidence so as to support the regime`s claim that political groups opposed to military rule masterminded the blasts.

As reported, military leaders and police investigators have sent mixed messages about suspects, evidence and motives, similar to the official response to the previous year`s Erawan Shrine bombing, Thailand`s worst ever terror attack, in which not less than 20 people had lost their lives and at least 125 people had been injured in Bangkok.

Groups affiliated with the coup ousted Peua Thai Party, its Red Shirt pressure group, and its aligned Wadah faction based in the country`s Muslim majority deep south, have been pointed by the junta officials, as police probes have mainly implicated the Barisan Revolusi Nasional insurgent group.
