Iranian bombs himself [Bangkok, near embassy row]
Bangkok Post ^ | 2-14-12

Posted on 02/14/2012 5:13:52 AM PST by SJackson

An Iranian man was severely injured when he threw a bomb at police that hit a tree and bounced back towards him and exploded in Bangkok on Tuesday afternoon, reports said.

Two bombs went off on Sukhumvit 71 road, injuring five people, including an Iranian man, the reports said.

According to a television news report, an Iranian man carrying a black bag hurled the first bomb at a taxi after the driver refused to accept him as a passenger. The cab driver was among the injured, reports said.

When police arrived at the scene, the foreigner then threw a second bomb at them, but it hit a tree and bounced back towards him and exploded. He lost both of his legs in the blast, the report said.

Klong Ton police said the explosions occurred about 2pm outside Kasempithaya School in Soi Pridiphanomyong 31-33.

Police were investigating and had temporarily closed Klong Ton and Phra Khanong intersections.

Initially, police were unsure whether there were explosives in the black bag.

The injured Iranian was later rushed to Kluaynamthai Hospital.

Bangkok... If it can happen there, it can happen in Tokyo. I am feeling very grim right now.

When it comes to his trial, he won't have a leg to stand on.

The few times I was sent to Thailand, the intelligence types always briefed us to stay away from Government buildings.

Yes, but it makes him easy to catch.

Short chase.

He'll need a leg up just to get there. Just two feet away from allah and hell.

I read that the now leg less guy flew into Bangkok from Korea. We can hope their incompetence continues because their anger is likely to escalate. I hope the bystanders and cab driver aren’t too badly hurt. One of my BILs used to drive a cab in Bangkok and had many stories as one could imagine. There is a relatively large foreign Muslim section near Silom Rd in Bangkok. That is close to the embassies and main shopping district.

for those who don't know who Yingluck is

Primie Minister of Thailand. (I think related to Thaksin)

I dont know what her politics are, I would believe anything she wanted me to believe.

He’ll never stand trial.

Actually, he should be released, so that he can train others to follow in his footsteps.
