    Forensic photographs obtained exclusively by ABC News show an undetonated explosive device that was designed to be a part of a failed bomb plot in Thailand. Three Iranian suspects were arrested last week for their alleged involvement in the plot which fell apart when a similar device apparently exploded in an accident at the house where the Iranians were staying.

    The photographs show the bomb used what appears to be a hand grenade firing mechanism and was packed with military-grade explosives and ball-bearings generally designed to maximize casualties. Six magnets also appear to be attached, allowing an attacker to physically stick the explosive to its intended target.

    Israeli and American authorities told ABC News a handful of the bombs had been designed using the $27 radios to attack Israeli targets in the Thai capital of Bangkok.

    Bomb experts said that a potential attacker could slap the bomb onto a vehicle, pull the pin and then make his getaway before the bomb explodes about four and a half seconds later.
