 BANGKOK, May 8 -- The Constitutional Court judge's home was targeted with a hand grenade, while two M79 grenades each were used at Chulabhorn Hospital and the Siam Commercial Bank head office in incidents last night.

A closed circuit security camera captured images of a suspect wearing a baseball cap throwing the explosive into Mr Suphot's home before running away along the Bang Sue canal.
At the time of the attack, Mr Suphot was not at home.
At around 10.40pm, two M79 grenades were shot into the Siam Commercial Bank headquarters on Ratchadapisek Road.
One grenade landed on the 8th floor of the A Building, shattering windows, another landed at a McDonald's restaurant on the first floor of the west wing, causing minor damage but there was no report of injuries.
At around 9.45pm, two M79 grenade were fired into Chulabhorn Hospital near Bang Khen market in Lak Si district. One of the projectiles landed at a residence for doctors.
