*WARNING GRAPHIC PHOTOS & VIDEO* Three blasts rocked Bangkok today, reportedly killing a taxi driver, and badly injuring a man with his own bomb. Thai authorities have not confirmed any fatalities. Local police said the perpetrator is a man who is thought to be an Iranian, which had both his legs ripped off when a bomb he was carrying exploded. "There were three explosions, but no dead," Police Major General Wichai Sungprapai was quoted by AFP as saying. Reports said five people are injured. The picture posted on Twitter by @motorcyrubjang showed a wounded man lying on a sidewalk strewn with broken glass outside a Thai school, his legs apparently ripped off in an explosion. Police say he is now in hospital under armed police guard. The wounded man was carrying explosives at the time, Thai TV reported with an identification card found in a satchel nearby indicating he may be of Iranian descent. Eyewitness Accounts Eyewitnesses reported that the man was carrying a black bag and that he hurled a bomb at a taxi after the driver refused to accept him as a passenger. When police arrived at the scene, the man reportedly threw a second bomb at them, but it hit a tree and bounced back towards him and exploded, blowing his legs off. Today's blasts have been linked to yesterday's blast in New Delhi when a motorcyclist attached a remote device to an Israeli Diplomats car. 3 people were injured but there were no fatalities. Another bomb in Georgia was found in the car of a local employee at the Israel embassy and was defused. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed the attacks on Iran and the militant group Hezbollah. Iran has denied the claims. Photo courtesy of motorcyrubjang.
