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.
Sounds like the guy wasn't taking good notes while in class...
At the rate these imbeciles are going, 0-3, they’ll destroy themselves before any Japanese are.....
Great way to start the day!
Houston, we have a problem.

YOU NOT KNOW WHAT YOU DOING.
I love a story with a happy ending.
When it comes to his trial, he won't have a leg to stand on
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.
You just ever have...one of THOSE days?
He sure did.
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.
“When it comes to his trial, he won’t have a leg to stand on.”
He’ll never stand trial.
Actually, he should be released, so that he can train others to follow in his footsteps.
