CNN Breaking News

Police today are sealing off the scene of a deadly blast near a popular Hindu shrine in central Bangkok, Thailand, because a bomb in the area remains active and needs to be defused.

Bomb squad members in blast suits responded to the area, and an officer announced over a loudspeaker, "The situation is still not safe. Please all stay back. There might be another bomb in the area."

The Bangkok Post reported several casualties.

The blast occurred about 7 p.m. local time near the Erawan Shrine, a Hindu place of worship and tourist attraction.
