Bombing in Thailand Hotels Scare Tourists

Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra vowed Saturday to provide full remedies and step up security measures to rebuild confidence among tourists.

These, after car bombs took place in the restive southern province of Yala and Songkhla, Thai News Agency reported.

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, in her weekly program “Yingluck Government Meets the People,” said the government would take responsibility in taking care of the victims who were wounded in the incidents in Yala and Songkhla’s Hat Yai district.

Security agencies would step up security measures — particularly in public areas — as more police and military would be deployed to ensure safety of public and more cameras would be installed in the close-circuit camera system network, she said.

The Transport Ministry would also apply strict security checks at public bus services and airports, said the premier.

The bombing at Hat Yai’s Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel in Songkhla on April 1 killed three persons — including two Malaysians — and wounded over 350 tourists and shoppers.
