    Grenade Explodes in Bangkok, Thailand


    by NTDTelevision

    A grenade exploded outside a Thai state-run television channel in Bangkok Tuesday. It comes as a state of emergency remains in place, to stop any anti-government protests.

    A grenade exploded in a compound of a Thai state-run television channel on Tuesday, but no injuries were reported.

    The grenade hit cars in the parking lot of broadcaster NBT.

    The attack is the latest in a string of attacks in Bangkok where a state of emergency remains in place.

    The TV station has come under criticism from "red shirt" anti-government demonstrators, who accuse the channel of biased reporting and distorting information.

    It was the latest in a series of mysterious small grenade or bomb attacks over the last five weeks in the Thai capital.

    A state of emergency remains in place after deadly clashes between troops and anti-government protesters in April and May.

    It was the fourth unexplained incident of its kind in the capital since July 25, when a bomb hidden at a bus stop outside a supermarket killed one man and wounded nine.
