People flock to donate blood following bomb blast

Hundreds of people line up at the national blood donation centre at Thai Red Cross Society headquarters on Rama IV road following the fatal bomb blast on Ratchaprasong intersection near the Erawan Shrine on Monday night.
The explosion killed at least 20 and wounded dozens others. The injured people, including foreigners, are receiving treatment at many Bangkok hospitals.

The donation centre receives blood on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 to 4.30am; on Tuesday and Thursday from 7.30am to 7.30pm and on weekends and holidays from 8.30am to 3.30pm.


Thai baht hits over 6-year low after Bangkok bomb blast

SINGAPORE — The Thai baht on Tuesday fell to its weakest level in more than six years on concerns that a bomb blast at a popular shrine in Bangkok may hurt the country's tourism.
The baht lost as much as 0.5 percent, falling to 35.55 per dollar, its weakest since April 2009.
On Monday, a bomb planted at one of the Thai capital's most renowned shrines killed 22 people, including eight foreign tourists, and wounded scores in an attack the government called a bid to destroy the economy.
