BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha on Friday condemned those behind at least three small bomb blasts that hit the capital Bangkok as it was hosting a South East Asian security meeting with world powers.

There was been no immediate claim of responsibility for the blasts, which hurt at least three people.

“On the bombing this morning, I would like to condemn those causing the situation which destroys peace and damages the country’s image. I have instructed officials to take care of public safety and those affected promptly,” Prayuth said.
