A soldier and a civilian were wounded when a bomb exploded at a customs office on the border with Malaysia in Narathiwat's Tak Bai district on Thursday morning. 

Pol Col Prayong Khotsakha, the Tak Bai police chief, said the home-made bomb went off about 10.15am at a sentry booth in front of the Taba customs office on the Thai-Malaysian border. It was remotely detonated.

The improvised bomb, weighing about 5kg, had been buried there and exploded as many people were going through customs procedures.
