Navy ordinance specialists defused a homemade bomb found near Banglamung Vocational College.
Determined to be little more than a giant firecracker, the device was found April 1 about 20 meters from the civil-defense volunteer post on Soi Nongketyai. The naval bomb squad defused the device with a water-cutting tool and no one was injured.
The navy’s bomb squad was able to defuse this homemade bomb planted near Banglamung Vocational College.
The triangle-shaped object with two funnel-shaped plastic containers, circuit board, and fuse wires taped into a 15cm chunk was likely left by teenagers looking to injure rivals or someone unhappy with neighbors in the area, police speculated. Investigators noted that a dummy bomb had been found in the same area previously this year.
