Seven people have been slightly hurt in a car bomb explosion on the tourist island of Koh Samui in Thailand. A pick-up truck containing the bomb caused panic after it went off in a shopping centre car park.
Thailand's military-led government says it believes the same group behind several recent blasts in the capital could be responsible for this bombing as well. The car bomb in Samui was detonated in the basement parking area of a popular mall on the holiday island late Friday. In February, two pipe bombs exploded outside an upscale Bangkok shopping mall, slightly injuring two people.
An official said six Thais and a 12-year-old Italian girl were treated in hospital for slight injuries and released.
