You may have heard about the Israeli Embassy bombings of recent days?
This may well be an attempt at doing the same…
Iranian bombs himself
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.
There’s not much more to the story yet.
In any other context this would be a tragedy, and I sympathize with the others injured… but I sure would like to have seen the look on the Iranian’s face the second before the BOOM.
JERUSALEM – An Israeli Cabinet minister says his country will “settle the score” with the perpetrators of a bombing attempt in Bangkok.
An Iranian man fleeing wounded from an explosion at a rented Bangkok house lobbed a grenade at police that rebounded and blew off one of his legs Tuesday in a series of blasts. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said the explosion, which wounded four civilians, was an attempted terrorist attack backed by Iran.
