Bangkok, Feb 21: It began when three men blew up their house accidentally on Valentine's Day in Bangkok.
It ended with a gory scene that looked more like Baghdad: A bloodied, would-be bomber with severed legs moaning on a glass-strewn sidewalk after another botched blast.
Last week's explosions in the Thai capital announced the apparent arrival of international terrorists in this Southeast Asian nation, revealing a plot allegedly aimed against Israeli diplomats.
So far, three Iranian citizens have been detained in the case, and this week, a Thai court issued an arrest warrant for an additional Iranian suspect.
On Tuesday, police were investigating strange stickers plastered on Bangkok utility poles and billboards that may have marked routes for intended victims.
However, questions remain about who was behind the plot.
