Death toll in Bangkok blast rises to 15

At least 15 people are killed and many injured after a bomb exploded outside a popular religious shrine in Bangkok.

Body parts were scattered across the street after the explosion outside the Erawan Shrine in the downtown Chidlom district, an AFP reporter witnessed.

Charred and shattered motorcycles littered the scene, along with broken glass.

The Erawan is an enormously popular shrine to the Hindu god Brahma but is visited by thousands of Buddhist devotees every day.
