SONGKHLA: A Thai freight train en route to Malaysia was derailed after explosives planted on the rail tracks went off in Sadao, Songkhla, on Saturday.
The train was transporting rubber from Hatyai to Padang Besar in Perlis. It was reported to be derailed at 12.50pm (local time).
The State Railway of Thailand said there were no injuries to the two drivers, a technician and staffer on board. However, 11 of the 15 container wagons were damaged and came off the rails.
Sadao police superintendent Bantern Laochareng said initial investigation found a 26kg homemade bomb had been planted on the tracks and the explosion derailed the freight train, with the shipping containers falling off the track.

“We found a big hole on the track,” he said.
The Hatyai-Padang Besar route has been closed for several days for repairs.
