CityNews— On Tuesday, 29th April, a suspicious bag was found in front of the Chiang Mai Public Health Office (PHO) on Suthep Road. The Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit inspected it and found no trace of explosives.

Around 4:30 p.m. on April 29th, Phuping Police received a report about a suspicious black bag left in front of the Chiang Mai Public Health Office’s fence. The official secured the scene and informed units from the Region 5 Police.

The EOD officials were cleared to inspect the bag after they noticed ants around it. They found foods, clothes and a broken watch inside. Phuping Police think some homeless person may have left it there. The incident has caused the healthcare workers anxiety and fear following the Farm House Bakery bombing in San Kamphaeng on the previous day.
