Eight soldiers were killed by the roadside bomb in Thailand's restive south early on June 29, an army spokesman said, raising questions over the durability of a fragile peace process aiming to end the near-decade long insurgency. More than 5,700 people have been killed in a festering insurgency in Thailand's Muslim-majority southern provinces, but optimism for peace has flickered recently after talks between authorities and some rebel groups including the Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN).
