Tragedy in Thailand (Daily Times (Pakistan))

The mind-numbing bomb explosion in Bangkok, Thailand has shaken up people all over the world. The area that was targeted was a busy shopping district where a shrine was located, attracting many hundreds of tourists everyday. The attack seems to have been an attempt to stamp out the roaring tourism industry in the country through the age-old tactic of instilling terror.

The aim of the terrorists must not be fulfilled. Thai people are extremely hospitable and the country is a premium holiday destination. Every effort must be made by the Thai authorities to find out who is responsible and to crack down on such outfits.
