Thailand: Hua Hin: 2 bombs explode at popular resort

Bombs hit popular Thailand resort town of Hua Hin

Two bombs have exploded in the Thai resort of Hua Hin, killing at least one woman and injured 10 people, including foreign tourists, police say.


The bombs were hidden in plant pots spaced 50m (164 ft) apart, and detonated by mobile phones within half an hour of each other, they added.


Twin bombings are a regular occurrence in Thailand’s three southern provinces, which are wracked by an insurgency.


But it is rare to find such attacks in Thailand’s tourist areas.


Hua Hin, a coastal resort on the Gulf of Thailand, is popular with foreign and Thai visitors.
