At least 13 bombs exploded almost simultaneously on Thursday at commercial banks in southern Thailand, where Muslim insurgents have waged a bloody campaign for autonomy, police said.

Initial reports said that several people were injured but details were not available, said police Maj Gen Kobjit Chitkaroon.

Eight of the bombs went off in the capital of Yala province while five exploded in the province's Betong district, he said.

More than 1,500 people have been killed in the insurgency since early 2004, most of them in the Muslim-dominated provinces of Yala, Narathiwat and Pattani.
