Bombs hit popular Thailand resort town of Hua Hin
Two bombs have exploded in the Thai resort of Hua Hin, injuring 11 people, including foreign tourists, police say.
The bombs were hidden in plant pots and detonated by mobile phones, the police added.
Twin bombings are a regular occurrence in Thailand's three southern-most provinces, which have been wracked by an armed separatist insurgency for 12 years, says the BBC's Jonathan Head.
But such attacks are rare in tourist areas of Thailand, he adds.
The blast took place in Hua Hin, around 200km from Bangkok, just before midnight, with several tourists believed to be among the victims.
Police said the bombs were hidden in plant pots and detonated by mobile phones, but it is currently unclear if any Britons were hurt or killed.
BBC journalist Jonathan Head tweeted: "1 bomb followed by 2nd; similar to south insurgents."
Shane Brett added: 200 meters from the bar I was in there were two bomb attacks. Never have I been so frightened, whole city on lock down."
Edwin Wiek added: "One foreign man with wife and child badly injured, had bones sticking out of legs according to local people."

REAKING NEWS: One woman killed and at least 10 injured in Thailand – including foreign tourists - after two bombs explode at a beach hotspot
Two bombs exploded in plant pots at Thai resort of Hua Hin today
One woman is said to have died in the blast with bombs 30 minutes apart
At least 10 people believed to be injured including 'foreign tourists'
At least 10 people have been injured after two bombs exploded in a popular Thai tourist resort.
The explosives, believed to have been placed in plantpots, went off in the Hua Hin resort earlier today.
It is unknown whether any British people were hurt, but foreign tourists are understood to have been among the victims.
HUA HIN — Twin explosions hit major tourist destinations in the resort town of Hua Hin shortly before midnight, killing one victim and injuring at least 12 others, including 4 who are in critical condition, police said.
The incident came hours after another bomb went off in the southern province of Trang and wounded seven people, and just days before the first anniversary of Thailand’s worst terror attack in its recent history.
Hun Hin Police Police Cheif Sitthichai Srisopacharoenrat identified the deceased victim as a Thai woman. Among the 12 people injured in the explosions, nine are foreigners, Col. Sitthichai said.
According to police report, the two bombs in Hua Hin went off nearly half an hour apart at Fa Pha Intersection and Soi Bintabaht, which are home to numerous bars and restaurants frequented by foreign tourists.
The injured were sent to Hua Hin Hospital, San Paulo Hospital and a local branch of Bangkok Hospital.
Police said evidence at the scene suggested both explosions were results of explosive devices.
No group has claimed responsibility so far.
If it proved to be a terror attack, it would be the worst incident of its kind to hit Thailand since a bomb went off nearly a year ago at Erawan Shrine in Bangkok. The Aug. 17 attack killed 20 people, mostly foreign tourists.
