Khaosod English, August 17

Bangkok — Explosives experts reportedly have located a second bomb set in the Thai capital’s commercial heart after a large explosion killed at least 12 people and injured others around 7pm tonight.

National police spokesman Prawuth Thawornsiri said the explosion was caused by a bomb and killed 12 people.

Photos from the scene show blood and bodies on the ground as rescue workers rush to provide aid near the local landmark, which is heavily frequented by Thais and tourists alike and is especially busy during rush hour.

In images tweeted by JS 100 radio just after the blast, fires were burning in Sukhumvit Road. A explosives unit has been dispatched to the site of a deadly bombing in Bangkok this evening to look for another possible bomb, according to a JS100 account.
