A 33-year-old man died after a bomb exploded in Krabi.
The Klong Thom Police were notified of the incident on Sunday (April 2nd) at a house in South Klong Tom. The Krabi EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) and the Krabi Forensic Police were called to the scene.
The man was later identified as Mr. Kampanart Sapjaroen, 33, who had been pronounced dead at the scene. His body was surrounded by many unexploded bombs and the one that had set off. It took more than three hours for the EOD to recover all bombs from the area.
Local residents told Thai media that Mr. Kampanart was a garbage collector. At this stage, relevant law enforcement officers believe that Mr. Kampanart took the bombs from a nearby area and he tried to break one of the bombs open for parts, not knowing it was still live, when it exploded.
However, relevant agencies are continuing their investigation to find out where the bombs originally came from.
