Bangkok, the 21st of September 2010: The latest in a long list of bombings that have disturbed Bangkok in recent months occurred early on Tuesday morning at the car park of Supavadee Towers in the capitals Ratchawat district.

The explosion is reported to have created a small hole in the surface of the car park and shattered the windshield of a nearby car, no casualties or injuries were reported. The owner of the car, a physician at the King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, has been unavailable for comment.

Police investigating the scene explain that no bomb fragments have be discovered by the Explosives Ordinance Disposal Unit (EOD), increasing speculation that the device may have been some form of TNT or C4 ‘low pressure’ explosive.

CCTV coverage of the scene captured no images of any potential suspects involved with the incident, with police suspecting that the device had been thrown from outside the car park. No connection with the countries ongoing political situation has been mentioned.

Meanwhile, in response to a confirmation of approximately 30 rocket-propelled-grenades being stolen from the Lopburi army facility last week by Gen Anupong Paochinda, premier Abhisit has suggested that intelligence agencies were now investigating a reported ‘insider’ involvement in the crime.

Mr Abhisit said the army is now investigating the case and that security agencies must be on high alert due to the prevalence of this type of weaponry being used in ‘disturbing’ attacks across the nation. The premier then stipulated that no evidence to suggest that the thefts were the result of people looking to cause dissent, although security has been upgraded regardless.

It is now believed that the army are internally investigating the situation and those soldiers surrounding the operation of the strategic bases armoury and weapons supply.
