According to the report, the motive was bring down tourism and economy of Thailand..hence foreigners were attacked but they do not seem to know who is responsible yet.
Some Singaporeans were injured too.. Hope the injured get well soon..
The fatalities number is still changing it seems... :gloomy: :sad:

"Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwon said the bombers had "targeted foreigners... to damage tourism and the economy"."
