Event

A low-yield improvised explosive device (IED) detonated in the Pak Kret district of Bangkok on Sunday, August 4. The device had reportedly been placed in a cardboard box and left on the side of a road; police also found an additional unexploded device nearby. There were no reported injuries from the blast. 

An investigation into the blast is ongoing; no group immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing. A heightened security presence is expected throughout the city in the coming hours.

Context

The reports of an explosion on August 4 comes days after several devices detonated or were discovered across Bangkok on August 2, including at the Government Complex in Chaeng Wattana, near the Chong Nonsi BTS Skytrain station, and at BTS Sala Daeng station. Thai police also found two fake bombs near the venue of an Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) meeting on August 1. According to police officials, the suspicious boxes did not contain explosive material and it is unclear if the ASEAN forum was the target of the hoax.

Advice

Individuals in Bangkok are advised to monitor developments to the situation, remain vigilant, report any suspicious objects or behavior to the police, and obey all instructions issued by the local authorities.
