    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.
