Thai police said on Friday they believe that a series of blasts targeting tourist resorts in southern Thailand overnight
and in the morning were acts of local sabotage and were not linked to any international militant group.
Police were investigating but had not yet found any connection between the blasts in three popular tourist destinations in the south
, deputy police spokesman Piyaphand Pingmuangsaid told reporters.
Eleven blasts went off within 18 hours of each other, and eight of them went off within an hour and a half of each other.
At least four people were killed and dozens wounded.
It was also unclear whether the blasts were related to an insurgency in Muslim-majority provinces in southern Thailand, he said. Two people were killed and dozens wounded in the blasts.
