Pattani - A grenade attack in southern Thailand has left two police officers dead and at least 42 injured. The blast damaged a police vehicle and broke many windows of the police station.
On Wednesday, two unidentified assailants on a motorcycle rode in front of the Muang police station in the southern Thai province of Pattani and threw a M67 into policemen, according to Reuters India.
The grenade attack occurred shortly after 8 a.m. as officers were saluting the flag and reciting their oath of duty. Two police officers, including a sergeant, were taken immediately to the hospital for severe injuries but later died, reports the Herald Sun. 42 others were injured by the attack.
The Nation reports that a police pick-up truck was severely damaged and many windows of the police station were broken due to the blast.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack but authorities at the Muang police station say they were checking video records of security cameras in the immediate area to gain more insight into the bombing.
