Suspected Iranian Blew Off His Own Leg In A Botched Terror Attack In Bangkok
Feburary 14, 2012
One day after bombs targeting Israeli embassy staff went off in India and Georgia, another botched attack played out this morning in Bangkok.
Through several reports, the incident appears to have played out something like this: Saeib Morabi, a suspected Iranian, was fleeing an explosion that rocked through his rented home in central Bangkok.
While he was on the road looking for transportation, another explosion went off "on a nearby road." When Morabi finally managed to flag down a cab, the driver refused to take him where he wanted to go.
The refusal prompted Morabi to pull out another explosive and toss it inside the cab, injuring the driver and two nearby pedestrians. Other reports have the bomb going off in front of the cab.
The police were running down Morabi following the third explosion when he turned, pulled a grenade from a satchel and threw it at police. The explosive hit a tree, bounced back, detonated, and blew off one of his legs and mangled the other.
Following this blast, authorities investigated his rental home, suspecting Morabi had more explosives hidden there. It's not yet reported what they found, but officials did arrest a second man at Bangkok's international airport Tuesday night.
This incident follows last month's arrest of a Lebanese-Swedish man, arrested in Bangkok, who led authorities to 8,000 pounds of fertilizer and liquid ammonium nitrate. It's unknown if those bomb materials are related to today's incident.

If we or Israel attack Iran, I expect all sorts of things like this to occur here.
"And Police General Bansiri Prapapat has confirmed Morabi's nationality. "We discovered the injured man's passport. It's an Iranian passport and he entered the country through Phuket and arrived at Suvarnabhumi Airport on the 8th of this month," he told Reuters"
Too bad the cab driver didn't beat him to death with it.
God works in mysterious ways....hehehehehe
So tough to get good help these days.....
Close, - - but no virgin torso for him!!
You’re right, but add the police to the Clouseau list after this quote from the Guardian:
“with police unsure whether or not to classify the man as a terrorist.”
Ain’t that a shame.
He now goes by the name “Skippy”.
An old soldier with some experience with grenades sez (sic):
1. A grenade is an area weapon.
2. When it detonates, it's best to not be in the area designated as "the target".
3.You're welcome...oops, too late.
Naw, ‘Hoppy.’ Except — he blew off the one leg and they amputated the other. I love the part, ‘hit a tree, bounced back and detonated.’
And I swore that I would't bang my head against my desk today .... Good grief, what do the cops need? Maybe if he carried a Business card that read:
Achmed Mohammed Raghead
Woman mutilation, Child molestation, and
Exporter of misery, hatred, poverty and disease.
His nickname during aquatic sports is "Bob"
More like the Wiley Coyote who keeps blowing himself up trying to catch the Roadrunner.
Realize the Iranian will be ridiculed by the Iranians because he brings ridicule upon his people. They will say he should have blown himself up and died rather than be captured.
He is lucky he didn't. He still has a chance to repent of his murderous intent and escape the flames of hell.
Sounds like a winning video for Thailands Funniest Video show!
"'Tis but a scratch!"
A case of premature detonation. Don’t they have pills for that?
Yeah....and if it lasts more than 4 hours.....see a doctor.
