Wave of bombings in Thai south: one dead 29 injured 01/09/2006

Senior security officials in Thailand are blaming ethnic Malay separatists for a series of bomb attacks in the kingdom's south.

A wave of small bombs exploded almost simultaneously at 22 banks, leaving one person dead and at least 29 injured.

Police say militants dressed as students left the bombs hidden inside books at commercial banks across the province of Yala.

Two suspects were arrested in connection with the attacks.

No group has claimed responsibility, but the Thai national security agency had been anticipating a possible attack on Malaysia's independence day.
