Deadly blast rocks Thailand capital

(Bangkok) A bomb, which was placed inside a Hindu shrine in the centre of Bangkok, was detonated today at 1900 hrs local time and resulted in the untimely deaths of 19 people and another 120 people injured.

The shrine is a major attraction for visitors from Asia and for Thai people. Dedicated to the Hindu god Brahma, it is also popular among Thailand’s Buddhist and Chinese tourists.

All eyes are on the rebellious Islamic population in the south of the country who wish to cede from Thailand and form their own little empire.
