Hat Yai bombings - May 27, 2007
A thread about this event is here.

11:00 pm - The Nation raises the number of bombing locations to seven.

10:35 pm
- All the Thai-language programs have returned to regular programming.

10:30 pm - Report from a reader: I was in Carrefour at 6. There were fire tenders at the boiler room. The complete lack of any sign that anything was amiss lead me to suspect nothing more than equipment problems. That would seem to indicate they either found something there or thought something might be there...
