PHUKET:-- Frightened locals alerted police of two suspicious, possibly explosive objects found in Patong last night.

“We received reports of suspicious objects placed in two spots – one in China Town on Soi Sai Nam Yen road, and the second on Sai 2 Road in front of a nearby hotel. We ordered Patong Police officers to look into the matter,” confirmed Phuket Provincial Police Commander Teerapol Thipjaroen.

Upon investigation, officers described both the objects as being similar to ‘power banks with an incomplete wire circuit’. Col Chaiwat Auikam of Patong Police consulted with the Explosive Ordinance Disposal, who confirmed that the objects were not explosives after all.

Many times, bad guys can place devices like this to see the response time and reaction times of your emergency services.......they will just sit back and observe what you do. Then they can plan more effective attacks.

I'm reading in other TV threads that there was a very real blast in Patong minutes ago. Can anyone confirm?

 

were the duds a lull before the storm or used to sidetrack authorities.
