Officers say four marines have been killed when a homemade bomb exploded as they were inspecting it at a base in Thailand’s insurgency-plagued south.

Capt. Somkiat Ponprayun says the Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit believed they had defused the device, which was found Monday along a road in Bacho district in Narathiwat province.
