Explosion reported at Erawan Shrine in Bangkok, Thailand 12 dead, 20 wounded

Breaking over the last hour or so, a large explosion out in front of the Erawan Shrine in downtown Bangkok, Thailand:

A bomb has exploded close to a shrine in the centre of the Thai capital, Bangkok, police say.
Local reports suggest at least 12 people have died and at least 20 more have been injured.
The BBC's Jonathan Head, who is at the scene, says there is a huge amount of chaos, with body parts scattered everywhere.
The attack took place close to the Erawan Shrine in Bangkok's central Chidlom district.

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble. Not much between despair and ecstasy.
