BANGKOK, Feb 14 � An Iranian today set off three blasts in Bangkok, blowing off his own legs while one of his compatriots was arrested when he attempted to flee to Malaysia, a day after Israeli embassy cars were targeted in Indian and Georgian capitals.
Four locals, including a woman, were also injured in the blasts that occurred outside a school on Soi Sukhumvit 71 Road that branches off a busy multi-lane road in the Thai capital far away from foreign embassies.
Authorities here did not point fingers or suspect a link between yesterday�s incidents in New Delhi and Tbilisi and the blasts in Bangkok, but Israel said a possibility of Iranian link could not be ruled out.
Saerb Moradi, one of the three Iranians living in a rented accommodation and allegedly making bombs, blasted the house in Ekamai area of central Bangkok after police discovered explosive materials there.
Moradi along with two other Iranians fled from the scene. He tried to stop a taxi and after the driver refused to accept him, he threw a bomb injuring the driver and ran off.
