AT LEAST 20 KILLED, 20 INJURED IN BANGKOK BOMB BLAST

BANGKOK, Thailand – The explosion took place in the centre of the Thai capital at around 7pm killing  at least 20 and 20 have been injured after a bomb blast in the centre of Bangkok, which would have been packed with tourists.
Police confirmed the explosion, near a shrine at a major Bangkok road, was from a bomb but no one has yet claimed responsibility for the terror attack.
Witnesses said victims were ‘blown to pieces’ after the explosion outside the Erawan Shrine in the downtown Chidlom district of the Thai capital.
‘I can confirm it was a bomb, we can’t tell which kind yet, we are checking,’ national police spokesman Lietenant General Prawut Thavornsiri told AFP.
The Erawan is an enormously popular shrine to the Hindu god Brahma but is visited by thousands of Buddhist devotees every day.
It is located on a main road through Bangkok’s commercial hub and is surrounded  by  three major 
shopping malls.
