At least 10 people have been injured in the southern part of Thailand following a bomb blast.

The government in Pattani province has been fighting a separatist Muslim insurgency there for a decade, and martial law has already been in place in the region before last's military coup in the country.

Local leaders say a political solution is the only way out of the conflict, but that both the military and the separatists have their own reasons to escalate the violence.
