On Tuesday there was a second explosion after an explosive was thrown from a bridge in Bangkok. No injuries were reported, and a connection between the two hasn't been established.

No one has claimed responsibility for either bombing. 

An analyst told the BBC terror networks usually do so, and said it's unlikely Muslim separatists are to blame as they've never attacked Thailand's capital.
