Two people were slight injured in an explosion in front of the National Theatre near Sanam Luang Monday night.
The two victims were identified as Ms Chanpen Wutthi-aekpaiboon and Ms Kanchana Booncheep. Both sustained minor injuries on their arms and were given first aid treatment at a field hospital tent of the army at Sanam Luang.
The explosion took place at about 8.20 pm at a garbage bin in front of the National Theatre. Shortly afterward, a team of explosives ordnance disposal (EOD) was rushed to the scene to investigate.
It was still not known whether the explosion was caused by a bomb or from other devices.
Metropolitan police commissioner Pol Lt-Gen Sanit Mahathavorn who went to the scene said that he suspected the explosion did not come from a bomb or a giant firecracker, but came from the explosion of high-pressure pipe.
