Newspaper office hit by two small bombs

(SEAPA/IFEX) - Two small explosions occurred outside a newspaper office in a northern suburb of Bangkok during the early hours of 30 January 2007, causing minor damage to the building and the hotel next door, but no casualties.

Reports said the first blast went off at around 1:30 a.m. (local time) outside the office of Thai-language newspaper, the "Daily News", while the second exploded soon after, about 30 metres from the first, in the parking lot of the neighbouring hotel.

Police are investigating the motive for the bombing. A report from the news source Bloomberg said the editor, Pracha Hetrakul, was not available for comment.
