ISRAEL has accused Iran of waging a covert campaign of terror from the Middle East to Asia after a botched bomb plot in the Thai capital led to the capture of two men believed to be Iranian.
A series of blasts in Bangkok's Sukhumvit area wounded four civilians and blew the leg off a man who fled a house carrying what appeared to be grenades after a cache of explosives ignited there.
''The attempted terrorist attack in Bangkok proves once again that Iran and its proxies continue to perpetrate terror,'' Israel's Defence Minister, Ehud Barak, said in Singapore, where he is visiting an air show.

The Bangkok blasts came after an Israeli diplomat's wife and driver were wounded in Delhi when a bomb stuck to their minivan exploded and another device was defused on an Israeli embassy car in Tbilisi, Georgia.
