Thai Police: 2 More Suspects In Terror Case

Published February 17, 2012 5:45AM (EST)

BANGKOK (AP) — Thai police say they are searching for two more suspects in a botched terror plot against Israeli diplomats that has been blamed on Iran.

Bangkok police commissioner Lt. Gen. Winai Thongson says one of the two new suspects may have been providing training in the use of explosives to three Iranian men who were detained in Thailand and Malaysia this week.

Winai said Friday that a 52-year-old man was seen early Tuesday on closed circuit camera footage leaving a house used by the Iranians in Bangkok where explosives detonated accidentally later in the day.

Winai says police are looking for an additional suspect who had rented the destroyed house with an Iranian woman who is now believed to be back in Tehran.
