Thai coup muddles insurgency fight in south

Local leaders say both the military and Muslim separatists have their own reasons to escalate violence.

    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.
