Two Bombs Explode in Thailand Resort Town of Hua Hin

Two bombs exploded Thursday in the Thai seaside resort of Hua Hin, killing at least one person and wounding 12 others, British media reported.

Police said attackers hid the bombs in plant pots roughly 55 yards apart from each other and detonated them using their phones, the BBC reported.

The explosions unfolded about 30 minutes apart, The Sun added, reporting that tourists were among the wounded.

Hua Hin, on the Gulf of Thailand more than 100 miles southwest of Bangkok, reportedly has become a popular destination for British travelers.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the blasts. Analysts say southern Thailand frequently sees separatist attacks, but they’re much less common in tourist areas.
