BANGKOK (AFP) - Israeli diplomats were the target of a failed bomb plot by three Iranian suspects in Bangkok, a senior Thai intelligence official said on Wednesday.
'These three Iranian men are an assassination team and their targets were Israeli diplomats including the ambassador,' the official told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.

'Their plan was to attach bombs to diplomats' cars.'
One of the Iranian suspects had his legs blown off as he hurled an explosive device at Thai police while fleeing an earlier blast at a house in Bangkok on Tuesday, officials said.
