While investigating the scene in Songkhla’s Chana district where a fisherman lost his leg when he stepped on a bomb buried underground, two explosive ordnance disposal personnel at the investigation site sustained serious injuries when another bomb exploded.
They were working near a railway bridge near Ban Na subdistrict under the surveillance of police and soldiers where three militants were killed the day before at a mosque nearby. The location had been sealed off immediately for a thorough investigation, as had the Nam Khem-Bo Ton Sae intersection.
The two officers were identified as Wisit Buasri and Soracha Anuyato, and they have been admitted to a hospital. The bomb was planted along the railway track, which was not far from where a 44 year old villager lost his leg,
