Two bombs found at Democrat Party headquarter
Two bombs were discovered early Monday close to offices of Democrat party and they were set to explode at 10.50am.
But police found them before they exploded, police said on Monday.
Police were alerted at about 6.30am when a city cleaner found a box wrapped with wireless on the floor close to Kuang Apaiwongse building. She then alerted Democrat Party staffs.
When police arrived at 9.30am, they found two boxes contained the explosives which were set to explode at 10.50am. Police defused the bombs at 10.15am.
Police said, "They are TNT bombs and very light," he said.
The bombs were found as Democrat leaders were meeting in another building with other opposition parties, Democrat Party's spokesman Ong-art Klampaiboon said.
A small bomb exploded March 9 outside the official residence of the chief adviser to Thailand's king, but caused little damage and minor injuries to two passersby.
Another small bomb exploded on February 22 outside the offices of a Buddhist cult affiliated with Chamlong Srimuang, a former political mentor of Thailand's prime minister who is leading protests to demand the premier step down.
