Thailand's army has declared a curfew in two districts of the country's Muslim-majority south following increased violence in the area.

An army spokesman says the curfew will be in place for eight hours beginning at eight in the evening local time in the districts of Yala and Banang Sata, both in Yala province.

On Wednesday, 11 people were wounded in a bomb attack outside a mosque in Yala, in what police officials described as an attempt to pit Muslims against Buddhists.

Earlier in the day, suspected Muslim insurgents shot and killed eight people traveling in a commuter van. All of the dead passengers were Buddhist.

Yala is one of three southern Thai provinces caught up in a Muslim separatist insurgency that has killed two thousand people over the past three years.
