Car bomb wounds 42 in Thailand

A powerful car bomb ripped through a restaurant packed with government officials in Thailand's troubled Muslim-majority south yesterday, wounding at least 42 people, the army said. The blast was one of the most serious for months in the kingdom's insurgency-plagued provinces bordering Malaysia where a bloody separatist rebellion has been raging for more than five years.
The 50-kg device was hidden inside a stolen Toyota pick-up truck and exploded during the busy lunch hour in the center of Narathiwat, the main town in the province of the same name, officials said.
