Witnesses reported that an explosive device was hurled at approximately 1.20pm from the Sathorn bridge near a parking lot for pickup truck taxis, bounced into the water and exploded there.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. The pier remains open.

Police converged upon the scene and closed Sathorn Road to traffic from the pier to the Saphan Taksin BTS station. Divers went into the water to try to recover any surviving pieces of the device.

Sathorn pier is a major terminal linking Chao Phraya River commuter boats and the nearby Skytrain station. It’s also a major tourist stop, especially for Chinese tour groups.

Transport Minister Prajin Juntong said the Sathorn bomb was improvised explosive device that was thrown.

An IED is also blamed for Monday’s devastating explosion at the Erawan shrine that officially has left 20 dead and 108 injured.
