Thais nab bomb sus­pect


BANGKOK: A for­eign man de­scribed as a “main sus­pect” in the deadly Bangkok bomb­ing was ar­rested last night, with Thai po­lice call­ing him an im­por­tant fig­ure in the net­work that staged the at­tack.

The man is the sec­ond for­eigner held over the Au­gust 17 blast at a re­li­gious shrine in cen- tral Bangkok which killed 20 peo­ple. Po­lice said ar­rest war­rants have also been is­sued for three fresh sus­pects still at large.

A Thai po­lice spokesman said the man ap­peared “sim­i­lar” to a prime sus­pect cap­tured on se­cu­rity cam­era footage leav­ing a bag at the scene mo­ments be­fore the blast.
