Bangkok, Thailand - A man literally and figuratively played with fire earlier today and attempted to run inside the Iranian Embassy in Bangkok while ablaze.
The man who was identified as 40-year-old Iranian national, set himself on fire but was immediately extinguished by security guards at the embassy, and then sent to Camillian Hospital at about 1pm.

According to police, the man was standing across the street from the Iranian Embassy, located on Sukhumvit soi 49/11. He was seen holding a sign that read “Don’t voted Iris,” along with three words that the police thought to be Arabic, before he self-immolated, Coconuts Bangkok reported.
The investigation is ongoing, Prachachart reported.
Current Iranian president Hassan Rouhani and hard-line cleric Ebrahim Raisi are seen as the front-runners in today’s election.
