Suspected Muslim insurgents have launched a wave of attacks in southern Thailand that killed one person.

Police Col. Prayong Khotsakha says 24 other people were wounded in the violence Sunday in the city of Yala.

Prayong says the most serious of the assaults was a car bomb that detonated in front of a furniture store, triggering a blaze that burned nearby homes.

He says several other explosions were reported in the city, blowing up a motorcycle and a bank's automated teller machine.
