    The house of a former Thai MP and current advisor to the deputy prime minister on the far south was attacked with grenades on two consecutive nights this week.
    Najmuddin Uma was asleep at his Rangae district home in the troubled southern province of Narathiwat when he was woken by two explosions just after 2 a.m. on Monday.

    Witnesses later reported seeing two men on a motorcycle fire grenades into the compound. Nobody was harmed in the attack but the explosions left large holes in the roof and ceiling and damaged car parked nearby.

    The second incident occurred just after midnight on Tuesday when a third grenade was fired. The round landed in a neighbour's property where the blast injured one occupant.

    The former politician's house was attacked the same manner in March last year, but police have made little progress in solving the case.

    Najmuddin Uma one of nine high-profile members of a Muslim faction in the governing Pheu Thai Party. It is believed the attacks were politically motivated.
