Bangkok, May 9 (IANS) At least 40 people were injured on Tuesday in two successive explosions at a shopping mall in southern Thailand’s Pattani province, officials said.
The first bomb went off inside the Big C mall at 2.08 p.m. (local time), followed shortly by a second and more powerful one in the parking area, a Pattani provincial police official told EFE in a phone interview.
Photos inside the shopping mall, where the first explosion went off, showed lesser damage compared to the ones taken in the parking lot where a number of vehicles were destroyed by the second blast.
The second bomb was inside a bag placed in a pickup truck parked outside the building, police officials said.
No armed group or individual has claimed responsibility for the attacks so far.
