At least 10 involved in Thai shrine bombing, say police

Thai national police spokesman Pol Lt Gen Prawut Thawornsiri said on Thursday (20 August 2015) that at least 10 persons, including Thais, were involved in the deadly bomb attack at the Erawan Shrine in Bangkok.

He also referred to the man in a yellow T-shirt captured by CCTV cameras and for whom an arrest warrant has been issued, saying the suspect did not use the Thai language in communicating with the motorcycle taxi driver he hired.

According to the spokesman, the suspected bomber was “Caucasian, Arab or mixed race,” aged 20 to 30 and about 170cm (5-foot-7) tall.

The police are now hunting for two men and a woman captured on the camera standing near the prime suspect for interrogation.
He believes the attackers are still in Thailand.
