NARATHIWAT – Police found a one kilogramme bomb in a fruit basket at a local vendor’s house in Baan Bricha in Rusoe district on Thursday, reports said. 

Police, rescue crews and soldiers rushed to the scene after a local resident tipped them off about a suspicious looking object he believed to be a bomb.

The bomb had been assembled in an iron box, with a detonator triggered by a mobile phone, and hidden in a fruit basket. They shut down phone signals in the area and defused the bomb. It took them about 20 minutes.
