The world is a dangerous place, and nuclear war isn't the only threat.

4 explosions in seperate cities in Southern Thailand. Trang, Hua Hin, Surat Thani and Phuket. 3 are dead.
Phuket is a major holiday destination for tourists.

It is likely that separatists located in the south of Thailand are responsible. This is the same group as those responsible for last year's Bangkok Bombing.

I'm surprised more weren't killed...
