Though it's not part of the riotous Middle East, Thailand has its own share of militants, with three hidden roadside bombs killing at least two and wounding 13 others in the country in recent weeks. The photo above, taken by a Reuters photographer, shows one car bomb exploding as the armor-suited bomb squad member attempts to defuse it. Scary doesn't cover it.
According to the Associated Press, it's standard practice for Thai bombers to plant a secondary bomb to go off while the first one is being investigated.
