BANGKOK, Thailand (CNN) -- At least one person was killed and 32 injured during a twin bombing in Thailand's southern Muslim-majority Yala province Tuesday morning, police said.
The first bomb went off in Yala, the provincial capital, near a motorcycle shop around 8 a.m. (0000 GMT). There were no casualties in the initial attack. As police, emergency services and journalists responded to the scene, a second, much larger blast occurred.
The lone death involved a Thai police officer. Among the wounded were two journalists.
Bombings occur on a regular basis in Thailand's three southernmost provinces of Yala, Narathiwat and Pattani, where an Islamic insurgency that flared in January 2004 has resulted in the deaths of about 2,000 people. E-mail to a friend
