Two people have been arrested after a series of bomb blasts targeting tourist resorts in Thailand.

At least four people have been killed and more than 30 are injured in 11 blasts within 18 hours in cities and resort towns across the south of the country.

Some of the devices were reportedly left in plant pots and detonated remotely using mobile phones.
