Car Bombing

*All images copyright*

The following images are from the large car bomb that was detonated in the southern border town of Sungai Kolok, Narathiwat on Thursday August 21st.

This attack, according to the Yala bomb squad, was the largest car bombing in Southern Thailand.

There were two explosions. The first was hidden in a motorcycle and detonated to attract the police/military, first responders, media, and civilians who often crowd around.

The second bomb, a homemade devise made out of 2-3 large fire extinguisher casings and filled with metal shrapnel, was then remotely detonated by an insurgent who was
likely watching the scene.

The final photos are from Chalee Boonswat's funeral. He was a reporter for Thai Rath newspaper and was killed by the second explosion.
