|BANGKOK Women's DeVante Parker Jersey , Jan. 15 (Xinhua) -- The residence of Thai Democrat Party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva in Bangkok sustained a bomb attack on Tuesday night, local media reported Wednesday.
Police reportedly identified the bomb as big firecrackers, which caused damage to the residence but injured no one as Abhisit and his family were not inside when the attack took place, according to the Nation newspaper.
A woman and three men were later arrested by the police on suspicion of conducting the attack, but they have been released for lack of evidence.
A core leader of the anti-government protest Thaworn Senneam was quoted as saying the suspects were also responsible for smuggling and supplying weapons used for a shooting around midnight that injured two people.
The Bangkok shutdown operation, launched by protesters to force the caretaker government to step down, entered its third day on Wednesday.
The government is currently holding a meeting to discuss whether to postpone the Feb. 2 general election, yet in the absence of representatives from the Democrat Party and anti- government People's Democratic Reform Committee.

UNITED NATIONS, Feb. 11 (Xinhua) -- The UN Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) welcomed the release of a government minister of the Central African Republic (CAR), who was kidnapped last month, a UN spokesperson said Wednesday.
Armel Ningatoloum Sayo, the minister of Youth and Sports, was released on Tuesday. "The Head of MINUSCA, Babacar Gaye, reiterated his call on all parties, including armed groups, to join immediately the current momentum for national reconciliation and social cohesion for the return of lasting peace in the Central African Republic," UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said at a regular briefing at the UN headquarters.
MINUSCA also strongly condemned the act of kidnapping, saying such actions only complicate the current crisis that the international community is helping CAR to solve.
Sayo was abducted on Jan. 25 in the capital of Bangui by armed men believed to belong to the Christian anti-Balaka militia group. MINUSCA noted that his release is "the result of multiple efforts. "
The CAR has been embroiled in sectarian violence for more than a year since Seleka rebels were ousted from power in January 2014, triggering inter-communal retaliatory attacks between anti-Balaka militia group and Seleka rebels.
On the humanitarian side, UN Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator Kyung-wha Kang Wednesday visited Bambari in the CAR and met displaced people and representatives of both Muslim and Christian communities, said Dujarric.
Kang urged the community leaders to help promote inter-communal dialogue. She also warned that in the current worldwide context of multiple crises, the biggest threat to the CAR people is that this crisis becomes forgotten.
Even if you haven't visited Fiji, you probably have an idea of what this small island nation looks like - miles of sandy beaches, palm trees, lush mountains and pristine coral reefs. Fiji has become a major travel destination and has become especially popular with honeymooners, divers and water sports enthusiasts. Part of the appeal of a visit to Fiji lies in the fascinating mix of cultures, the welcoming nature of its people and the country's ancient and unusual traditions. The following are some interesting Fiji facts:
Fiji isn't just one island - the country is comprised of about 300 islands that are large enough to be inhabited. If you count every coral outcrop, the country actually consists of thousands of islands. Fiji covers a surprisingly large area of water - in total, measuring approximately 40,000 square miles. The country's highest mountain is Mt. Tomanivi at around 4300 feet high.
Fijians are known for their hospitality and friendliness - although this hasn't always been the case. A little over a century ago, the Fijian people were thought to be ferocious cannibals. Souvenir and craft shops on the islands offer four-pronged wooden forks for sale, reminding tourists of those days. One unfortunate victim of the cannibals was the missionary Thomas Baker, who was eaten with the exception of one of his shoes. Today, the uneaten shoe is on display in the Fiji Museum.
Fiji is one of the first places in the world to greet each new day, as it is situated on the 180 degree meridian - also known as the International Date Line. For practical reasons, the line makes a detour around Fiji so that everyone observes the same time. However, on the island of Taveuni, a marker indicates a spot where you can stand with one foot in one day and one foot in the day before!
