Thailand blasts: 'Iranian' bomber injured in Bangkok

A man thought to be Iranian has lost both his legs after trying to throw a bomb at police in the Thai capital, Bangkok, officials say.

Two other explosions were reported in the same busy commercial district of the Thai capital, injuring four others.

The explosions come a day after two bomb attacks targeted Israeli diplomats in India and Georgia.

BBC security correspondent Gordon Corera said that Israel was again adamant Iran is behind the attacks, but "what the specific evidence for a link is, that's not quite clear yet."
