MANILA, Philippines — No Filipinos were reported to be among the casualties in a series of small explosions in Bangkok, Thailand, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said Friday.

The bombings, which injured four people, took place as Thailand was hosting the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) Foreign Ministerial Meeting (AMM) and Related Meetings.

In light of the recent bombings, the DFA urged Filipinos staying and traveling in Thailand to remain calm.

However, the DFA still reminded Filipinos to take extra precautions.

“Filipinos are likewise advised to cooperate with Thai authorities as they implement heightened security measures,” the DFA said.
