On Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2012, an Iranian man carrying explosives blow his own legs and wounded four other people in two blasts in Bangkok, Thai authorities said. A third blast took place in a nearby house.
Bangkok has been on the watch for a terror attack since police last month charged a Lebanese man suspected of planning a strike following a US warning that tourist areas might be target.
"Yesterday's incident was caused by current international tensions in world politics," National Security Council Secretary General Wichean Potephosree told a news conference.National Security Council chief Wichean Potephosree said that, the authorities are investigating the possible targets and if there was any link between Tuesday's explosions in Bangkok and one a day before New Delhi — an attack Israel blamed on Iran. Authorities say it's unclear whether the Bangkok explosions were linked to the New Delhi attack.
