“The bomb aimed at killing as many people as possible as the shrine is crowded at around 6 to 7 p.m,” police spokesperson Prawut Thavornsiri told AFP.

The bomb was reportedly attached to a motorbike outside the temple.

No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks, with the Thai government seeing it as an attack on the Thai economy.
