Bangkok explosions linked to the New Delhi attack

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.
