There has been a large explosion close to a shrine in the centre of the Thai capital, Bangkok.
Local TV has initially reported five dead and 20 injured and quoted police as saying it was caused by a bomb.
The BBC's Jonathan Head, who is at the scene, says there is a huge amount of chaos with body parts scattered everywhere and a crater that does indicate a bomb attack.
If this is confirmed, he says, it would be rare for the capital.
CCTV video posted on Facebook appears to show the moment a huge explosion struck Bangkok, causing the deaths of at least twelve people in the Thai capital.
