The Philippine Embassy in Bangkok is still verifying reports that a Filipino was among the 21 people killed when a large bomb rocked central Bangkok’s Ratchaprasong area on Monday night.
Charles Jose, Foreign Affairs spokesman, did not confirm international media reports that said a Filipino was one of the foreigners who perished in the blast.
Among those killed were 10 Thais, three Chinese and five others whose identities are yet to be confirmed.
Reports indicate that the attack could be biggest in Thailand since the May 2014 coup.
It seemed to target the city’s Erawan Shrine, which is popular with Chinese tourists.
