Two bombs explode in Klongton, bomber injured (Bangkok)

The injured attacker was identified as Saerb Morabi. Police are hunting for two others suspects.

An Ara-blooking man apparently went berserk on Tuesday, separately throwing bombs at a taxi and later at police in Klongton district.

However an explosive fell from his hand and exploded as he was targetting a police officer who approached him and ordered him to stop. The device mutilated the bomber’s legs.

Pol Lt Col Witthaya Poonsin, deputy commander of Klong Tan traffic police, said the foreigner, who has yet to be identified, threw the first bomb at a taxi on Soi Pridi Panomyong.

The explosive rolled under the vehicle and exploded, damaging the vehicle. The taxi driver was not injured as he was standing outside the vehicle at the time of the attack.

After the explosion, he ran after the suspect to the main road of Sukhumvit 71.

Witthaya said the man later walked to Sukhumvit 71 Road and when he spotted a police officer, he then tried to grab another bomb from his backpack and apparently tried to throw it at the policeman. The bomb slipped from his hand, fell down to the ground and shattered his legs.
