A bomb has ripped through a food market in Thailand's troubled Muslim south, killing one person and injuring at least 30 on the eve of a visit by
the Prime Minister, officials said.
Police and soldiers were among those hurt in the blast in the Sukhirin district of Narathiwat province, bordering Malaysia.
It was the deadliest since a pair of bombs killed two policemen in the region in January, in the early stages of an upsurge in separatist violence
that has plagued the kingdom for decades.
