#HuaHin, a coastal resort located on the Gulf of #Thailand, is a very popular tourist spot among foreigners as well as Thai visitors. It’s being reported that two bombs were set off this evening, killing one and injuring at least 19 others. According to the BBC, the bombs were hidden in plant pots set 50 feet apart and detonated from phones within 30 minutes of each other.
Briton Mark Gainsford gave his account of what happened to the BBC since he had been in a bar near the blasts: “I heard people shouting ‘Bomb! Bomb!’ but I didn’t hear any blast,” he said. “I ran out to see if I could help. I saw eight to 10 people injured, on the floor. The police arrived very quickly.”
Apparently twin bombing are common in Thailand’s southern provinces, so it is very unusual that a tourist spot was stricken today. It is not known who is behind the attacks, so we will keep you updated. Keep Thailand in your prayers, Roommates!
