Security officers successfully defused a roadside bomb planted under a power pole in Narathiwat’s Sungai Padi district. The bomb was believed to have been intended to be detonated as a team of defence volunteers patrolled the area in the afternoon. 


The bomb in a 20-kilogram cooking cylinder placed in a green plastic bag was discovered at 9am on Sungai Padi-Chatwarin Fall Road in Tambon Paluru.

 

The Border Patrol Police Company 447 Explosive Ordnance Disposal team defused the bomb by shooting water from a high-pressure hose at a its radio-triggered detonator, while a device scrambled radio signals. They later disassembled the bomb near the scene and submitted the components to forensic officers and police investigators.

 

Pongsathorn Sonjit, who led the six-member patrol, said the team had been travelling on three motorcycles returning from protecting teachers when they spotted the bag under the power pole and alerted authorities.

It will be a nice day when the Rebels or insurgents get routed from Thailand,

I hope the fight against them will get more serious after the end of October.

Great job by these brave men, EOD a dangerous but necessary job.

 

Thanks also to the very observant patrol who saw the device and took appropriate action to have it defused.

Geezer

the insurgents (another name for Muslims) will take this country as easy as the Junta did when they are ready.

You may be right, but I think that Muslims are still a minority in Thailand, and I do

know the Buddhist majority does not have a ton of love for their brother and sister

Muslims.

Geezer
