Bones, pipe bomb found during canal dredging

Police yesterday submitted 65 pieces of bone, discovered along with a tear gas cylinder, a pipe bomb and a giant firecracker, during the dredging of Pradongmanutum Canal.

The bones have been taken for examination to the Institute of Forensic Science at the Police General Hospital to see if they were human.

A source reported that forensic doctors had not yet reached a conclusion from DNA testing, although some pieces looked like human leg and pelvic bones.

The canal dredging work is to turn this area near Government House into a floating market by February 12, according to Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha's instruction.
