    Two bombs have exploded in the Thai resort of Hua Hin, killing one woman and injuring 19 people including foreign tourists.The bombs were hidden in plant pots spaced 50m (164 ft) apart, and detonated by mobile phones within half an hour of each other, police said.Local reports say the woman who died was running a food stall in the area of the blasts.Five foreigners are reported to be among the injured, two of them Britons.Twin bombings are a regular occurrence in Thailand's three southern provinces, which are wracked by an insurgency, but it is rare to find such attacks in Thailand's tourist areas.Briton Mark Gainsford told the BBC he had been in a bar near the blasts: "I heard people shouting 'Bomb! Bomb!' but I didn't hear any blast."I ran out to see if I could help. I saw eight to 10 people injured, on the floor. The police arrived very quickly."Hua Hin, an upmarket coastal resort on the Gulf of Thailand, is popular with foreign and Thai visitors.Its royal palace is famous as the preferred home of King Bhumibol Adulyade.

    Unfortunately it does seem like Thailand is being targeted by Islamic terrorists more commonly these days.

    I would have said Antarctica but apparently that isn't a country. I'll probably have to say somewhere like Iceland or Greenland instead.
