(Newser) – Three separate bomb blasts injured more than 60 people in a Muslim region in south Thailand, reports the BBC. The explosions took place near a government office and a tea shop, appearing to target a meeting of local officials. Police accused separatist insurgents, who have targeted the area for years but have rarely undertaken an attack of this size. "There are still no reports of any deaths because police cut off all mobile phone signals at the scene of the attack," one cop on the scene told AFP.
