PHUKET: Bomb disposal experts this morning are inspecting a pickup truck that was found parked in front of Phuket City Police Station with two gas cylinders in the back seat connected by electrical wires.

Officers discovered the pickup truck on Saturday while clearing the police station car park for the annual police assembly held each year to launch the new year’s security detail.

“No one present claimed to be the owner, so we had the vehicle moved to the back of the station,” Provincial Police Commander Ong-art Phiewruangnont told the Phuket Gazette.
