One of the two bombs planted by insurgents in Thailand's southern province of Yala went off on Wednesday morning but cause no damage, while the other one was removed successfully by the police.
According to the Bangkok Post's website, local police banned villagers from entering the area and defused a bomb after security personnel found a suspicious object near a roadside shop in Muang district at around 6:30 a.m. (2330 GMT, Tuesday).
But one hour later, another explosive went off in front of a shop in the same district.
The police said the bomb was hidden inside a metal box and was triggered by a remote control. However, the blast did not cause any damage.
Thailand's three southernmost provinces -- Yala, Narathiwat and Pattani have been troubled with insurgency-related violence which has claimed more than 2,500 lives since it resumed in early 2004.
