Anti-Iran MKO behind Bangkok blasts: Thai Shia Cleric
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Husaini said on Sunday that the attack was orchestrated by the MKO with the aim of tarnishing Iran’s reputation. The cleric added that Bangkok and Teheran enjoy good bilateral relations.
Last week, a man hurled a grenade at Thai police officers and a cab in Bangkok. The attacker was injured seriously in the blast. Bangkok police say they found Iranian identification documents on the maimed man.
Earlier in the day, a house rented by three men, who police say were Iranians, exploded when a cache of explosives reportedly went off by accident. Soon afterwards, there was a third blast on a nearby road, Thai police said.
The three explosions in Bangkok happened one day after bomb attacks targeted Israeli embassy staff in India and Georgia.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has accused Iran of orchestrating the attacks.
Iran has rejected the accusation as baseless and a publicity ploy, adding that they are part of Tel Aviv’s psychological warfare against the Islamic Republic.
