Car bomb explodes in Thailand – Click above to watch videos after the jump

A squad of explosive experts were called on to a dangerous scene in Thailand's Narathiwat province near Bangkok today. According to MSNBC, a trio of roadside bombs detonated, killing two and wounding 13. A group of explosive experts were called in to defuse the third of those bombs, but it exploded, injuring seven officers.

The horrific incident was caught with both still photography and video. The footage shows a bomb expert cautiously approaching the suspected Honda Civic when an explosive device – believed to have been planted there by Islamic insurgents – was triggered.

The videos are graphic, but they also show the protective ability of the bomb squad's gear. The bomb squad expert who approached the vehicle was injured, but survived. Click past the jump to watch the pair of video clips.

      He got really lucky!!! The first video, shows the Thai police emptying a red propane canister of material. Yes, it's a fertilizer bomb!!! The detonator charge went off, but did not set of the higher energy fertilizer bomb. That would've put a crater there!!!

      Can I just say something here.. I am a muslim and my religion teaches me peace and respect for all other religions and people! I Dont know what on earth all these terrorists are trying to do but it clearly isnt working and they have tarnished the image of all us innocent true believers, and innocent people in many countries (muslims included) are getting unfairly killed for no reason whatever. The comments made about islam being a 'dangerous' religion are complete bullsh*t because like everything you get the ones that stand out (the terrorists) and the majority (people like me) who get stereotyped because of the stupidity of some people!

        Absolutely, only a tiny fraction of Muslims are terrorists. But a very large part of the Muslim community looks the other way when terrorists act. When is the last time you saw Muslims gathering in numbers and voicing their outrage against the various militant Islam groups? When Westboro Church is protesting at gay soldier's funerals, the rest of the Christian community pays attention and denounces their ass publicly, rallies around the funerals to protect them, and then as a community enacts laws against them.

          THAAAAAANK YOOOOUUUUUUU!!!! Every time Fred Phelps sends out his minions to protest in Orlando, I'm out with dozens more people than they send, screaming louder messages of love. I agree that the vast majority of Muslims are not terrorists, but complacency is a dangerous thing. Some fraction of their population is tarnishing the world's perception of them, and they seem to not care at all. I'll change my tune as soon as I see frequent Muslim rallies for peace.
          Neez

          west boro isn't shooting or bombing gays. Technically they are demonstrating within their U.S. rights peacefully. So yea other christians have nothing to fear in rallying against them. The whole muslims should rally against the bad ones, well the bad ones have bombs and guns. If you have to rally in the name of being a peaceful religion, you can't bring guns or bombs. You're pretty much going their to be sitting ducks. Yea, real smart.

        Well, Muslim, Hindu (mostly in India) and Islam need more people like you to stand up against these terrorists. Good luck.

      I got everything I own that it was set by a Muslim. Wanna wager with me? You know ... that "peaceful" religion. "Not all Muslims are terrorists; but all terrorists are Muslim". As far as the Muslim posters saying "hey, shut up ... I'm a Muslim and I'm peaceful"! Then we're still waiting on that Million Muslim March on Wahington To Denounce Hamas And ALL Terrorism rally. Won't see it in my lifetime. If you're not involved in stopping/denouncing this Mr. Islam, then you are promoting it. The peaceful Imam that spoke about the London and Madrid bombings said "I have my doubts as to whether it was necessary". Pardon me?

        all religious extremists are stupid, Christians, Muslims, whoever, if you take some ones life over something as silly as religion you really must be an ass.

        Wtf, does it really matter what religion this guy had? It's an act of idiocy, it's intention of murder of a fellow human being. How come 30 years ago all terrorists were from Sovjet? Stop eating massmedia bullshit.

      It's pretty amazing to think what the world was like before fundamentalist Islam. For you younger guys, it was really a great time until 9/11. Now we accept this kind of thing as if it's normal, while terror supporters like KeiCarLvr try to make themselves look saintly by blaming anybody but the criminal. KeiCarLvr, you may feel superior for a moment, so enjoy it.

        Ahahahahahah! You're joking right? Only people with a very limited world view think that it was "a great time" before 9/11. Terrorism isn't some new invention by Al Queida. Terrorism wasn't even a new thing in the US on 9/11. Remember the Oklahoma city bombing? It takes an amazing bit of myopia to think that this is a new problem just because the US was relatively unaffected by it. Remember the IRA? How about the PLF? How about Aum Shinrikyo? Please get a clue then come back to play.

          Terrorism was invented about 1000 years ago in Europe ;)

          Wrong. Terrorism was officially born 84 years ago when my mother-in-law spoke her first words.

      Because the expert was only injured or maimed, you feel it's OK to post this sick video? Do you really think anyone in your readership is going to learn anything from this except your incredibly low editorial standards? Is anyone over 18 at AB?

        I think what we learned about that car is that the blinker will still work even if a bomb goes off inside it...

        You are wrong. This is just what the interwebs are for and there is a car in the video. AB requirements achieved. I also enjoyed the lucky squirrel video also. Lambo tail remover.
