Phimai Festival alert: Homemade bomb found near Nakhon Ratchasima school
A suspicious object resembling a homemade bomb was discovered today in front of a school in the Nakhon Ratchasima province. Authorities quickly intervened to inspect and safely dispose of the object, suspecting it was created by teenagers planning to use it during the Phimai Festival.

The police station in Phimai, Nakhon Ratchasima, received a notification from a member of the public about a suspicious object under a tree in front of the Special Education Centre, Education Area 11, Nakhon Ratchasima. The police unit 191 of Phimai Police Station was immediately dispatched to the scene.

The object, a round device wrapped with black electrical tape, was found under a tree. Upon inspection, the police discovered that the device contained a mixture of cement, stones, gravel, and concrete debris, indicating it was intended to be a bomb, however, it was no longer functional.

Police officials speculate that the object was created by teenagers for potential use during the Phimai Festival. Multiple checkpoints were established by the police as a preventive measure against potential disruptions at the festival. Upon encountering these checkpoints, the teenage group likely hid the device to avoid detection.

Sukhsan Marasi, a teacher at the Special Education Centre, mentioned he found a suspicious object while cleaning and trimming trees in front of the office. He recalled seeing a similar object at the scene of a teenage brawl during the Phimai festival. Convinced that the object he found was a bomb, he quickly alerted the police to inspect and dispose of it, reported KhaoSod.

I'm not understanding how this was a bomb: there is no explosive?

What is it about Thai schools/ colleges and fighting? Seems an odd thing to be tribal about.
