DEADLY BLAST KILLED 5 THAI SOLDIERS IN THE SOUTH

Five paramilitary soldiers have been killed and one other has been wounded by a roadside bomb in southern Thailand, local police say.
Police said on Friday that the soldiers were travelling in a pick-up vehicle to meet Muslim community leaders in the Saiburi district of Pattani, one of Thailand's southernmost provinces hit by a near-decade long rebellion which has claimed more than 5,500 lives.
"Five rangers are dead, including the commander who was intially severely wounded," Sergeant Montri Prommee of Saiburi police told AFP news agency, adding the explosive device was buried in the road.
"They [the insurgents] want to create situations [unrest] on important days," he added, referring to the timing of the attack on one of the most important Buddhist holidays of the Thai calendar.
The Muslim-majority deep south has yet to curb violence against Thai security forces, or civilians, despite ongoing peace talks in neighbouring Malaysia.
