Muselmanic Work Accident

Police in Thailand say there have been three explosions in central Bangkok which have left one man seriously injured.

The Daily Mail has better cover:

A bungling Iranian bomber blew off his own legs when he hurled a grenade at Thai police outside a Bangkok school – which bounced off a tree and then exploded at his feet.

Police say a man believed to be of Middle Eastern descent was hurt when the bomb he was carrying exploded, blowing off one of his legs and causing serious injuries to the other.

The first explosion happened in a house he was renting in the Ekamai area of the capital.

He threw a bomb in front of a taxi as he ran off after that blast, leaving the driver with minor injuries.

The man then threw another bomb at police as they tried to close in on him and his leg was blown off in that explosion.

The man was admitted to Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn Hospital where he is receiving emergency treatment, an official at the hospital said.

The circumstances of the explosions, which occurred in eastern Bangkok outside the main business and tourist areas, remain unclear.
