EXPLOSION

Powerful blast hits building in Nonthaburi, killing 3

A powerful blast rocks a five-story apartment building in Nonthaburi's Bang Bua Thong district on Monday evening, killing at least three and injuring many others.

Police claimed the explosion broke out in a room on the second floor of the Saman Mettha Apartment building at about 6am.

The explosion severely destroyed the second and first floors of the buildings.

The impact of the explosion caused panic that the building could be collapsed.

The injured people were rushed to hospitals nearby. Some of them were said to be thrown out of the building in the blast.

Owner of the building; Samarn Bunprasert, told police that he did not know who rented the room where police believed that the blast started.

The explosion happened hours after the state of emergency was extended in the province as well as Bangkok, Pathum Thani and Samut Prakarn.

Nonthaburi has been a stronghold of Pheu Thai MP Apiwan Wiriyachai who is also deputy House Speaker. Apiwan is a leading red shirt leader who took stage several times to cristicise Abhisit government during the April and May Crisis.

Original story:

Two dead in blast at Thai apartment building: police

BANGKOK, October 5, 2010 (AFP) - An explosion at an apartment building north of Bangkok left two people dead and several others injured Tuesday, but the cause was unknown, police said.

The blast occurred at about 6.00 pm (1100 GMT) in the Bang Bua Thong district of Nonthaburi Province, according to a local police official.

"We still don't know the cause of the explosion. Two storeys of the mansion collapsed," said Police Lieutenant Colonel Somchai Hussakul.

The blast came hours after Thailand extended a controversial state of emergency in Nonthaburi and three other provinces, including Bangkok, in the wake of deadly street protests and a series of grenade blasts in the capital.

Bad news, although there is no confirmation it is actually a bomb yet I guess with all the recent troubles we can assume that is was...and if so, it's the worst yet and not a good sign.

A big blast on the second floor.

Possibility it could be the bomb makers themselves.

Unless it was a personal thing it hardly seems likely that anyone would take enough explosives to the second floor to cause a big blast.

Anyway condolances to the familys of the dead, a speedy recovery to the injured and hope the building owner had insurance.
