    Thai man accidentally kills himself with homemade bomb

    A young Thai man has accidentally killed himself with a homemade bomb in the Muang district of Kanchanaburi province this morning. 22 year old Amornthep Thongchomphu was found dead with his arm blown off after the bomb exploded in a field near his home.


    Local police went to the scene at about 11am, outside the manís house in Ban Nong Kung village of tambon Ban Thum. Police found the manís dead body along with a scorched, ruptured PVC pipe. Village headman Boonruam Somwongsa says Amornthap stayed alone in the house as his mother worked abroad, sending home money. He was apparently jobless and was not known to socialise.


    Boonruam says the man allegedly had a dispute with a neighbour previously and on 2 occasions had thrown a small bomb at his neighbourís house, leading him to file a complaint. Boonruam says it was likely that Amornthep was making another bomb to throw at his neighbour when it accidentally detonated.


    The Ban Ped police chief says another small homemade bomb was found at Amornthepís house, with its components being possibly bought from online.

    Well, that seems to have wrapped up that little dispute.

    I was thinking the same
    I guess they figured no need to do anything, he will blow himself up soon anyway.

    They were only small ones.

    Third time lucky for the target, I guess.

    Gotta give him credit for making a successful bomb. Most home made bombs end up being duds.

    I'd suggest he was simply an 'armless and wayward kid.

    The thing is, at that age these village creatures have all the emotional and cognitive development of an 11 year old and thus it is inevitable that they will exhibit recklessly moronic behaviour, particularly if left unsupervised which seems to have been the case in this incident.

    Not much of a pipe bomb if constructed using PVC piping.
