A bomb has detonated outside Cambodia’s National Assembly building in Phnom Penh on September 13, according to Twitter messages.

The Phnom Penh Post also said on its Twitter account that three M79 rockets have been found at Wat Phnom, the tallest temple in the capital city.

The improvised bomb at the National Assembly was uncovered approximately 15 meters away from the main gates, in a small patch of grass abutting a book store. At Wat Phnom, the devices have been planted in flowers.

Dozens of police and military police quickly sealed off the scenes as Cambodian Mine Action Center deminers inspected the bombs. At the National Assembly, the device – which was placed in a 10-litre barrel – was deemed too sensitive to move and was exploded on site.
