Four bombs have gone off around different parts of Bangkok this morning, in the wake of a fake bomb placed in front of the Royal Thai Police HQ in Bangkok late last night.

The first explosion this morning was in front of a Government Building, Building B, in the Lak Si District, in the northern suburbs of the capital. It went off around 7am.

The second explosive went off in a garden area, opposite the first explosion on Rama 9, a ‘short time’ after the first explosion. In both cases, no one was injured.

The third explosion was on Rama 9 in Soi 57/1, approximately 12 kilometres from the 1st and 2nd explosions, near the Airport Link in Bang Kapi. Two people were injured in this incident.

And at 9.17am a small device exploded near Chong Nonsi BTS, near the Mahanakhon Building in Sala Daeng district.
