Bomb blasts in Thailand target tourist spots

A series of co-ordinated blasts across Thailand has targeted tourist towns, leaving four dead and many injured, the BBC reports.

In the resort town of Hua Hin, south of Bangkok, four bombs exploded over the last 24 hours. Several blasts also hit the island of Phuket, one Thailand’s main tourist destinations, on Friday.

No group has said it carried out the attacks, but suspicion is likely to fall on separatist insurgents.

The timing is sensitive, as Friday is a holiday marking the queen’s birthday.

Travellers in Thailand are advised to exercise extreme caution, avoid public places, and follow the advice of local authorities.
