An Iranian man severely injured himself in Bangkok when he threw a bomb at Thai police and it ricocheted off a tree, exploding as it bounced back towards him, the English-language Thai newspaper The Bangkok Post reported Tuesday. The incident came one day after near simultaneous attacks on Israeli embassies in India and Georgia.

Shortly before, there had been an explosion in a house the man was renting in the Ekamai area of central Bangkok, government spokeswoman Thitima Chaisaeng told reporters.

Two bombs on Sukhumvit 71 road in the Thai capital wounded five people, including the Iranian man, according to the Post report. Witnesses reported seeing a man lying beside a blown-out telephone booth with his legs decimated.

According to a Thai television report, an “Iranian man” carrying a “black bag” hurled the first bomb towards a taxi after the driver refused to accept him as a passenger.
