    Chiang Mai bombings.

    Four wounded in Chiang Mai bombing

    CHIANG MAI, 22 Mar 2014, (NNT) - Police officials report that there were multiple bombings in Chiang Mai last night, saying no group or individual has come forward to claim responsibility, while acknowledging the incidents were the work of ill intentioned individuals creating public alarm.

    The first violent attack was on a PTT fuel station in Muang District at around half past eight, the police said, adding four people were injured, three of whom were station employees while the other was a customer. All the injured were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

    About one hour after the event, another attack occurred in Boonrawd Co.Ltd. in Sarathee District where an unknown number of attackers threw two grenades into the company’s compound. One bomb exploded while the the other did not. No one was injured during this attack.

    Finally at 10.15 PM, another bomb went off at the Andaman Seafood Restaurant in Muang District, Chiang Mai. The blast wrecked two cars but fortunately no casualties or injuries were caused.

    Police are conducting an investigation into the triple attacks.

    Saw this tonight. Seems a redshirt-yellow shirt thing. Still, its a nasty development. Figured I left this kind of shit behind in the middle east.

    Kind of dazzling to me that this would happen in Chiang Mai. Hope it's the end of it and not the start of something.

    Sadly, and without wanting to be chicken little or a doom sayer.. The ongoing deadlock of the political elite is only likely to make these kind of things a greater risk.

    Yeah, my first thought when I read Kevin's post was "even if they knew who did it, would anyone really be held responsible?"... too many powerful players involved for real justice to be done by the police force here.

    Don't forget one of the Boon Rawd family went explecitly for the Suthep people. Her family wants her to change her name as it will bring down sales in Issaan and the North. Heard Issaan people say they don't want to drink Singha any more.
