BANGKOK: An Iranian national lobbed two bombs in Bangkok Tuesday, one at a taxi that injured the driver and the second at police that bounced back from a tree and exploded, injuring both his legs. Three more people were injured in another bombing in the Thai capital.

The Iranian threw the bombs around 2 p.m. outside the Kasempithaya School in Sukhumvit 71 road, the Bangkok Post reported.

The man carrying a black bag hurled the first bomb at a taxi after the driver refused to take him as a passenger. The driver was injured.

When police arrived at the scene, the Iranian threw a second bomb at them. But the bomb hit a tree and bounced back at him and exploded. The bomber, who lost both his legs in the blast, was taken to hospital.

According to Xinhua, another bomb blast took place in Soi Pridi Banomyong 31 in the city, injuring at least three people.
