The bomb landed at the sign of Soi Borom Rajchonnanee 26, damaging the sign but did not cause any damage to the bank.

The attack happened at 3 am.

Thaworn Lokthaisong, 35, said the assailant might hurl the grenade from the elevated way nearby.

The explosion occurred just five minutes after patrol policemen visited the bank on the routine checking, he said.
