Thai police have confirmed that two more bombs have gone off in another city, killing one person, in the latest in a string of blasts to hit the country, including two in the seaside resort town of Hua Hin that killed one and wounded nearly 20 more people — half of them foreigners.

It was not clear who was behind the attacks. But the timing suggested it could have been carried out by opponents of the nation's ruling junta, whose leadership last weekend organized a successful referendum on new constitution that critics say will bolster the military's power for years to come.
