Bomb kills 1, wounds 10 after Bangkok by-election

A bomb at a bus stop in downtown Bangkok killed one person and wounded 10 shortly after polls closed in a parliamentary election that pitted a government candidate against a jailed leader of recent mass protests in the Thai capital.
Police Maj. Gen. Anuchai Lekbamroong, at the site of the explosion Sunday, declined to speculate whether the bombing was related to Thailand's continued political turbulence in the wake of the street demonstrations that paralyzed much of the capital for weeks.
The bomb wounded 10 Thai people and one women from Myanmar, all of whom were hospitalized, according to the government's Erawan Center, which accounts for casualties in such incidents.
