Central Festival Koh Samui after the bombing

Central Festival Koh Samui after the bombing, just a few days ago. The shopping mall closed down for one day but after that it was business as usual. Well, almost.

The bomb went off near the Phru or lake Chaweng side, possibly in an attempt to do as much structural damage as possible. Above is our 'favorite' car park entry pictured. We park our car most of the time pretty much where the bomb went off, although we never have been that late at the mall.

The time the bomb went off raises several questions, why at that time? It almost looks like the bomb went off with trying to minimize human injuries or let alone fatalities. 'Only' seven people git lightly injured and could be released from hospitals shortly after being admitted.

Damage to the food court, the door is out of order and glass structures are bent out of shape.

Much more speculation is rife about the motives and at the moment two theories prevail, one as being a local affair and one of being it a political motivated attempt.

Extra security measures are in place, with ID checks (being photocopied into cctv)

Koh Samui has been in the news recently with lot of TV shows on the island, checking for stories. When I took this picture, a TV crew is just about to leave the security checkpoint after having filmed and interviewed various people.
