Sus­pect is not help­ful


BANGKOK: Thai­land’s army chief yesterday said the man ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the deadly Bangkok bomb blast was not co-op­er­at­ing, as po­lice an­nounced he was part of a peo­ple-smug­gling gang.

The uniden­ti­fied for­eigner, who is be­ing held in mil­i­tary cus­tody at an undis­closed lo­ca­tion, was seized dur­ing a morn­ing raid.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors say he was found with bomb-mak­ing equip­ment and mul­ti­ple pass­ports. “The ... sus­pect is not re­ally giv­ing use­ful in­for­ma­tion,” army chief Gen­eral Udomdej Sitabutr­said.
