Bangkok: At least two people have been killed and 12 more injured as two explosions rocked the tourist hotspot of Hua Hin in Thailand, according to local media reports.
The blasts took place at night in the resort town, which is located nearly 200km from the capital of Bangkok. Several foreign citizens are believed to be among the victims.
A BBC reporter has tweeted that one person was killed while 10 others were injured in the twin explosions. The bombs are said to have been 50 metres and 30 minutes apart. Twin bombings are said to be common in Thailand’s southern-most provinces, with armed separatists wreaking havoc for 12 years – but they rarely affect tourist hotspots.
