No Filipino was injured in the series of bombings that rattled the capital of Thailand on Friday, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said.

Six small bombs reportedly exploded at the height of Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Foreign Ministerial Meeting in Bangkok where representatives from various countries attended including Philippine Foreign Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr., US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

Four people were injured in the terrorist attack.

“Filipinos staying and traveling in Thailand are urged to remain calm, but take extra precautions. Filipinos are likewise advised to cooperate with Thai authorities as they implement heightened security measures,” the DFA said.
