BANGKOK (DPA) – Thai police said they are investigating a new suspect linked to terrorist bombings in Bangkok earlier this week.
A blue-clad suspect is seen in security camera footage throwing a bomb at a busy pier on Monday, police spokesman Prawut Thavornsiri said Saturday.
A blue-clad suspect is throwing a bomb on Monday 17th August.
Bomb exploded on Tuesday 18th August.
The explosive missed the pier and exploded in the river. Forensics teams found similarities between that incident and the bombing that killed 20 people and injured more than 100 the previous day at a popular shrine, officials said.
Police are also seeking a woman seen dressed in black on security footage at the scene of the shrine bombing.
Two men earlier thought to have aided the prime suspect in that bombing were no longer under investigation after one turned himself in.
One of the men was a tour guide and the other was a Chinese tourist who had already left the country.
The two incidents are not thought to be the work of international terrorist organizations, Police Chief Somyot Poompanmoung said Friday, after investigators consulted with Interpol and foreign intelligence agencies.
