>> A summer night by the sea in Thailand quickly turning to horror Thursday night. Twin bomb blasts ripping through the upscale resort town Hua Hin, killing one and injuring at least a dozen, including foreigners. Police say the two explosives were hidden in plant pots lining a busy bar street and were detonated by mobile phone, going off within about 20 minutes of each other.

The attack happened ahead of a public holiday Friday marking the queen's birthday, meaning the resort town was more crowded than usual. Local media report this type of double tap bomb attack is a tactic used by insurgents in the south. The first explosion meant to cause chaos, and the second meant to inflict damage on law enforcement drawn to the scene.
