Three privates were wounded, two seriously, in when M72 anti-tank rocket exploded in front of an ammunition depot of the 3rd Infantry Battalion of the 1st Infantry Regiment on Rama V road in Bangkok's Dusit district on Sunday morning, the army spokesman said. 

Col Sansern Kaewkamnerd said the incident occurred at about 11am during a routine clean-up of military equipment.

However, what caused the rocket to explode was still not clear. The explosion could have been caused either by excessive heat or human error. A committee would be set up to investigate, he said.
