Thailand arrest bangkok bombing suspect

Thailand's security forces apprehended the foreigner who was believed to be the main man in the bombing of a shrine in central Bangkok last month.

As of the latest updates, there are still no confirmations if the said suspect is the person captured by the security cameras near the religious site that was attacked.

Following the bombing incident, notable persons in Thailand’s junta argued that the attack was not carried out by international terrorists. It was linked to the existing political conflicts in the country, Gen. Prayuth and other officials said.

On another note, there are public opinions that speculate that the latest bombing might be an organized retaliation for Thailand's act of deporting more than 100 ethnic Uighurs back to China.
