BANGKOK (Sputnik) The Thai prime minister on Friday ordered the tightening of security in cities and crowded places around the country, especially in tourist areas, in the wake of multiple bomb attacks, government spokesman Maj. Gen. Sansern Kaewkamnerd said.

"Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha ordered this morning to urgently strengthen security measures in tourist areas, cities and crowded places. Particular attention is being paid to the tourist areas, hotels, markets," Sansern said in a statement broadcast nationally.

On Friday morning, two explosions occurred in the southern Thai city of Surat Thani, two on the Phuket Island, and two in the Hua Hin resort. Later, two more explosions were reported in Thailand’s Phang Nga Province. At least two people were killed and at least four others were injured as a result.

On Thursday, two explosions hit Thailand's Hua Hin, killing at least one person and injuring over twenty. Also on Thursday, a bomb was reportedly detonated at a marketplace in Trang, killing one person and injuring six others.

A series of suspicious fires were also reported at several locations early on Friday, celebrated as the Queen’s Birthday and Mother’s Day holiday in Thailand.
