Bangkok: Thailand authorities issued arrest warrants on Tuesday for three more suspects linked to bomb attacks as the capital hosted a diplomatic meeting last month, raising the number of suspects still sought by police to seven.
Six small bombs and six incendiary devices went off on 2 August as the foreign ministers of Southeast Asian nations met in Bangkok, an event also attended by diplomats from China, the United States and other world powers.
Four people were wounded in the coordinated attacks and police have linked either to political issues or a long-running insurgency in Thailand’s Malay-Muslim dominated south.
“All the suspects are from the deep south,” he said, referring to the region where an insurgency has killed 7,000 people since 2004.
Police last week issued warrants for four other suspects who remain at large despite a ฿100,000 ($3,245) reward for information leading to their arrests.
