An Iranian bomber has been blamed for three explosions in the Thai capital Bangkok just a day after bomb attacks in India and Georgia. The blasts, which injured five people, come amid growing suspicion Iran is staging a series of revenge attacks for the assassinations of two nuclear scientists.
A picture posted on Twitter showed a wounded man - the bomb suspect - lying on a pavement outside a Thai school.
TV reports suggested an Iranian identification card was found nearby.
It is understood two blasts came from grenades while a third explosive detonated in a home rented by the suspect, Thai police said.

Police General Pansiri Prapawat said two foreigners quickly left the residence, followed by a wounded Moradi.
"He tried to wave down a taxi, but he was covered in blood, and the driver refused to take him," Gen Pansiri said. He then threw an explosive at the taxi and began running.
Police who had been called to the area then tried to apprehend Moradi, who hurled a grenade to defend himself. "But somehow it bounced back" and blew off his legs, Mr Pansiri said.
(You beat me to it.)
NOTE TO SELF: after blowing up your house, and yourself, don’t try setting off more explosives.
