Major New Year celebration canceled in northern Thai city after Bangkok bombings

The major public New Year's Eve celebration in the northern Thailand city of Chiang Mai was canceled following a series of deadly bomb attacks in the capital, Bangkok.
"It is not worth risking," said the provincial police chief in the area, Maj. Gen. Bandop Sukhonthaman.
Six or more bomb blasts rocked Bangkok, killing at least two people, injuring more than 20 and prompting the city to cancel major public celebrations.
The culprits and motive were not immediately known.
