Terror attack in Thailand’s Hua Hin resort town

One woman has died and at least 10 people have been injured after two bombs exploded in a popular Thai tourist resort.

The explosives, believed to have been placed in plant pots, went off in the Hua Hin resort earlier today.

Foreign tourists are understood to have been among the victims.

According to reports from local police, one woman has been killed in the attack, with the bombs understood to be detonated via mobile phones.

Reports on social media have suggested a foreign couple with a child were badly injured, with ‘bones left sticking out of their legs’.

Another Twitter user claimed a woman selling salad in the area was killed.

The explosions occurred within around 30 minutes of each other and the pots were said to have been around 55 yards apart.

Police are currently conducting forensic investigations at the site, using torches to examine the scene.

The resort is popular with both foreigners and locals, and hosts international jazz, car and kite festivals every year.

It is also famous for its fishing opportunities while its shallow and warm waters provide good conditions for kite boarding and surfing.
