Pol Lieutenant Nikorn Huilong of Mayo police station, said the insurgents set fire to the tyres of two motorcycles in front of the Sirirat Samakkhi School in Moo 3 of Tambon Thanon at 7.20am.
Nikorn said that when the assistant district chief and defence volunteers arrived at the scene, insurgents detonated a homemade bomb in an ambush but nobody was injured. The explosion slightly damaged the district chief's car and a civilian vehicle.
Authorities also found another bomb that had not been detonated.
The attacks prompted the Sirirat Samakkhi School to suspend classes. Another school in nearby Moo 1 village in Tambon Mayo was also closed for the day.
