BANGKOK - Thai investigators are examining a possible link between explosions in Bangkok and bomb attacks targeting Israeli embassy staff in India and Georgia this week, a senior security official said on Wednesday.

A man carrying an Iranian passport was badly injured by a bomb he was carrying in Bangkok on Tuesday, after an earlier explosion, apparently accidental, at a house he was renting. Police found other explosive material in the house.

The three explosions in Bangkok came a day after bomb attacks in India and Georgia. Israel accused Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah of being behind those attacks. Iran denied involvement.

After a meeting of top Thai security officials, National Security Council Secretary Wichian Podphosri told reporters that a magnet found among the material looked similar to ones used in the Indian bombing and in the device defused in Georgia.
