It's obvious where the explosion happened. No idea why. Photo taken today at 1146.

Wow I bet the local authorities will be trying to hide it or say it was a malfunction of the bike. They always seem to try and hide/deny such event until so many social media posts are made about it.

Isn't the battery usually under the seat that we see has been blown off? Pete :cheers:

The blast had enuf force to knock over the bike next to it..And lift it's front wheel up onto the rail..Is that a wheel rim minus spokes & tyre I can see laid there..?
As HHCanuck said here...it will be social media where we will no doubt find the story..unlikely the MiB will hold a press conference over this.

No, US. That's the passenger grab rail on the back of a bike parked opposite.

D'oh! Didn't think people would attribute the explosion to a bike. Maybe because I'd also seen a different view:

Wasn't BB complaining about a bad smell there recently?
Seriously though, that picture above looks more like something igniting in the drainage, maybe leaking petrol and a discarded cigarette.

I wasn't suggesting the cause only speculating that the authorities would want to cover up the incident or attribute it to something that could not be associated with terrorism such as the bike bombs in the southern provinces. Keeping in mind we did have bombings in HH that took a life. They will want to do everything they can to protect tourism. Look how they tried to hide the New Years Eve attack.
