Video: Thai bomb squad officer miraculously escapes death from exploding car

There has been another series of attacks against Buddhists in Thailand’s south. The Islamic jihad in southern Thailand gets zero attention from Western media despite the thousands of violent deaths that have occurred there over recent years.

This is an amazing piece of footage. Those bomb suits are really something.

Via Therightscoop – A bomb squad officer was lucky to escape serious injury when a car exploded in Thailand’s restive south on Friday. The officer, wearing a protective suit, was attempting to open the front passenger door of the parked car when the bomb exploded. Closed-circuit television footage showed the officer being thrown to the ground, but then picking himself up and walking away unhurt. Police later found an improvised explosive device in the vehicle. The incident was one of three attacks by suspected Muslim militants on government offices in the province of Narathiwat on Friday.
