Bomb explodes in downtown Bangkok
泰国四面佛景点附近发生爆炸


当地时间2015年8月17日,首都曼谷市中心著名旅游景点四面佛附近17日晚发生爆炸,造成至少27人死亡、78人受伤,死伤者中包括不少外国游客。

当地时间晚高峰19时(北京时间20时)左右,四面佛附近的拉差巴颂路口响起一声巨大的爆炸声。监控画面显示,现场火光冲天,行人四处逃散。

发生爆炸的地点位于曼谷最繁华的闹市区,路口有高级酒店、购物区和写字楼,无论白天夜晚游人如织,因此当晚的爆炸造成惨重伤亡。

A bomb has exploded close to a shrine in the centre of Thailand's capital, Bangkok, killing at least 19 people and injuring more than 120.

The Erawan Shrine, which was crowded at the time, is a major tourist attraction and foreigners, including Chinese, are among the casualties.

No-one has yet said they carried out the attack.

Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwon said the bombers had "targeted foreigners... to damage tourism and the economy".

"We will hunt them down," he said.

The Nation TV channel quoted Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha as saying the government would set up a "war room" to co-ordinate its response.

National police chief Somyot Poompummuang said that 10 Thais had been confirmed dead, along with four Chinese and one Filipino.

He said: "Whoever planted this bomb is cruel and aimed to kill. Planting a bomb there means they want to see a lot of people dead."

The explosion occurred at about 19:00 local time (12:00 GMT).

The Bangkok Post quoted police as saying that 3kg of TNT had been stuffed in a pipe inside the shrine and that an electronic circuit suspected to have been used in the attack was found 30 metres from the scene.

Police checked the area for other devices but no further bombs have been found, the paper said.(BBC)
