Three blasts a security issue but not terrorism: Yuthasak - The Nation

Three blasts a security issue but not terrorism: Yuthasak

February 16, 2012 2:04 pm

Deputy Prime Minister Yuthasak Sasiprapha on Thursday admitted the Tuesday's three explosions off Sukhumvit 71 were a security issue but there was no evidence to classify as a terror attack nor a linkage to Hezbollah.


"The government views the blasts as having impacted on the national security," he said in the question-and-answer session of the House.

The explosive devices undercovered were meant for individual targets and the blasts involving Iranian bomber suspects were individual crimes and not a terroroist attack, Yuthasak said.

The police investigation has yet to determine the motive why the suspects were assembling the devices before the explosions, he said. The authorities had no evidence to link the suspects to the terrorist movement.

Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul said his ministry had explained the situation to the diplomatic corps.
