New blast reported in Bangkok

There has been a new explosion in Bangkok, the day after a bomb attack that killed more than 20 people in the Thai capital.

Police are quoted as saying that there are no reports of deaths or injuries.

They say a small explosive device was thrown at passers-by near an above-ground metro station on Tuesday afternoon local time.

The unidentified man threw the explosive near a busy pier on the city’s Chao Phraya river and it landed in a canal, said Colonel Natakit Siriwongtawan, deputy police chief of Klongsan district.

“If it did not fall in the water then it certainly would have caused injuries,” he said.

Monday’s bomb blast near a popular shrine in the city centre killed 22 people including foreign tourists.
