At least one person was injured in multiple bomb attacks in the southern province of Thailand Jala, the police announced today.

"Around 13 small explosions hit the town of Jala late last night, mostly on the roads in front of shops, markets, veterinary clinics and car showrooms," said deputy police spokeswoman Kisana Patanacharoen.

Police today found at least three unexploded ordnance made from cans and metal tubes with timers attached.

Kisana said police suspected the blasts were more intended to cause unrest than to cause harm or injury to people.
