  • While China is still coming to its senses after Tianjin explosions that killed at least 114 and left 70 missing, there have been other explosions around the world this week. One in Bangkok, in which a British woman was killed among 22 people, the other one in Cairo. However, the link between the three bomb attacks hasn’t been established so far.

Thai police has obtained video footage of one of the suspects and claims that a network of 10 people was involved in the deadly attack in Bangkok.
