“We do not believe that those students know the method to create such explosive devices. We believe that experts have taught them with bad intentions, which can impact social security.”

Five students were arrested in Battambang’s Banan district on Saturday afternoon by provincial and district police for assembling and detonating illegal explosives, according to local authorities.

Battambang provincial deputy police chief Chet Vanny said yesterday that authorities received a report on Wednesday about a group of students on motorbikes throwing explosives on the streets, alarming bystanders.

Vanny, who led the investigation, said that five students – Un Phanet, 18, Orn Sopheap, 19, and three minors – were arrested, and some evidence, including explosives, was confiscated.

According to Vanny, the youths admitted to assembling the explosives themselves.

“They took the explosives from firecrackers, about four to five, and pebbles . . . They mixed them, put them in plastic bags and taped them,” he said.

The students have been sent to court for further action, while authorities are looking for the people responsible for teaching them the methods of creating the explosives.

“We do not believe that those students know the method to create such explosive devices. We believe that experts have taught them with bad intentions, which can impact social security.”

I'm no expert on the subject but they hardly seemed like sophisticated devices that would require outside grooming. Maybe they planned to blow up an ATM.

Yeah it's pretty simple and most guys in their early teens play around with firecrackers and like to blow shit up.

My mate Bob and his buddies made plastic explosives from a recipe off the net, went round blowing up post boxes until one of them unfortunately discharged in his mate's pocket. The police weren't best pleased, to say the least.

we all knew people that blew things up, more often than not themselves, but what kind of mind puts stones round them?
reminds me of the London nail bomber. i'd keep my eyes on them.
