The 2014 Hat Yai Bombings happened on 6 May 2014, when three improvised explosive[1] devices exploded roughly seven minutes apart in the heart of Hat Yai, Thailand in the afternoon, wounding at least eight people.

Attacks

The first went off at about 1:30 pm in front of 7 Eleven convenience store on Ponpichai Road and shortly after the second bomb went off near the police flats opposite Hat Yai police station. The blast damaged many vehicles as the bomb had been placed near the police station's parking area. Later, two more blasts hit near Hat Yai Junction Railway Station as well as close to the Robinson department store.

A further bomb was found near the flats in Prince of Songkhla Hospital[1] but the bomb squad was able to defuse it in time.

Suspects

Although nobody claimed responsibility for the attacks, police said they suspected Muslim insurgents were responsible for the attacks.
