A four-year-old girl and her fa­ther were among three killed yes­ter­day when a bomb hid­den in a mo­tor­cy­cle’s fuel tank ex­ploded out­side a school in Thai­land’s in­sur­gency-plagued south. The de­vice went off as pupils and teach­ers filed into the school in the Tak Bai dis­trict of Narathiwat province for the start of the day. Two of the dead were fa­ther and daugh­ter, lo­cal po­lice de­tec­tive Nop­p­dol Kingth­ong told AFP, adding that the bomb was set off by ra­dio con­trol as the pair neared the school gate.
