ON MONDAY, Aug 17, a bomb exploded outside the Erawan Shrine at the Ratchaprasong intersection in Pathum Wan District, Bangkok, Thailand. Bangkok-based freelance photographer Andy Zingo recorded what took place at the scene the following day and shared his images with us. The blast left 22 people dead and about 120 others wounded. A Singaporean, Ms Melisa Liu Rui Chun, 34, was amongst those killed in the blast. Ms Liu, an AXA Singapore employee, was on holiday with her family and friends. Her husband and brother were also injured in the blast. Police Lieutenant-General (Lt-Gen) Prawut Thavornsiri, spokesman for the Royal Thai Police, announced a 1-million baht (S$39,480) reward for information that will lead to the arrest of the Ratchaprasong bomber.
