Our man in Thailand, Chai, tells me that thankfully nobody was killed today, but just like the subdued American media, the Thai news media is giving short shrift to four separate Muslim terror attacks:
"Four civilians injured in three separate shootings, and two Army Rangers guarding students injured in a drive-by school bombing. We call that a 'good day' in Southern Thailand. Nobody died."
Two rangers injured by pipe bomb," Bangkok Post, December 17, 2o13
Two rangers were slightly injured by a pipe bomb thrown at them while on security duty at Ban Krachut School in Pattani's Mai Kaen district on Tuesday afternoon.
Pol Col Chalong Sukchan, the Mai Kaen police chief, said the attack occurred about 2.20pm when the two rangers, Kampol Pimol and Kraisorn Sommat of the 42nd Rangers Regiment, were checking out a shelter near the school fence.
Two men drove past on a motorcycle and the pillion rider threw an improvised bomb made of a PVC pipe across the fence into the school.
The two rangers were slightly injured by the explosion.
