A bomb exploded outside a religious shrine in central Bangkok late Monday, killing at least two people and wounding scores more, according to an AFP reporter at the scene.
Body parts were scattered across the street after the bomb went off outside the Erawan Shrine in the downtown Chidlom district of the Thai capital.
"I can confirm it was a bomb, we can't tell which kind yet, we are checking," national police spokesman Lietenant General Prawut Thavornsiri told AFP.
