1 hurt as small blasts rattle Bangkok mall shoppers

Police in Thailand on Monday were investigating a pair of bombings outside a luxury shopping mall in the heart of Bangkok, the first such violence reported in the capital since last year’s army coup. One person was slightly injured in the blasts Sunday night, and police said the small homemade bombs were designed to sow panic, not kill. The explosions occurred about 8 pm between the upscale Paragon shopping mall and a mass transit elevated train line, which was undamaged but briefly shut as a precaution.
