NO LINK TO INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM IN BANGKOK ATTACK
Thailand’s police chief says a bomb attack which killed 20 people in Bangkok on Monday had been planned for at least a month.
He has told reporters he believes a network of at least 10 people was responsible for preparing and laying the device, and keeping lookout.
Meanwhile the country’s prime minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha has insisted there is no link to international terrorism.
“Let the police investigate this – why do we have to talk about this?” he said.
“last night the United States had already said this is not a terrorist attack, so don’t talk about it” he added.
