A suspected Muslim insurgent was severely injured after a homemade bomb exploded while he was allegedly trying to plant it at a water-pumping station in Yala’s Muang district early on Sunday.

The explosion occurred at 1:30 am at the water-pumping station, police said.

They said security camera footage in the area showed two men arriving at the station on a motorcycle.

The footage showed one man getting off the back of the motorcycle and carrying a metal paint can into the station.

Police said the suspect’s left arm was broken and his face was severely burned by the explosion.

Police said they suspect the pair wanted to damage the main water pumps of the station but the bomb accidentally exploded before it was installed.

At 8 am on Sunday, a team of bomb disposal and forensic science police examined the scene with soldiers.

Based on fragments of the bomb, the team estimated that it carried between five and 10 kilogrammes of gunpowder. Police said the goal was to detonate it remotely, but the plan failed.
