Bangkok Bomb Suspect Arrested
The raid was launched after investigators received a tip-off that a man who looked like the suspect shown leaving the blast scene was staying there. About 100 police and soldiers were involved in the operation and they surrounded the apartment building before moving in.
Police said the officers found a lot of equipment and bomb parts in the rooms, including 0.5cm ball bearings, the same as the type used in the Aug 17 attack on the Erawan shrine.
- He is not the same guy who carried Erawan Shrine attack on August 17. He is his Muslim brother in Terror.
- These guys were planning to attack again. Why did they keep all these bomb making materials until now and they know the police are looking for them!
- All these passports look Turkish to me with the crescent and white star! I think they were going to give them to Uighurs to fly them to Turkey.
- Prayuth tried so hard to distract everyone from the obvious because he was responsible for sending these 109 Uighurs to China and cause that retaliation and the bombing of Erawan Shrine. What Yingluck trial is for! charges of negligence for “Rice”. What about that Bombing in Bangkok, the lost lives and the effect on tourism. Time to fix that mess. Time to put Prayuth on trial. Oh, I forgot. They are Junta and the Constitution, they drafted gives them full immunity. Do whatever you like Prayuth. It’s a Free Ride. Now, I believe you Prayuth, “Red Shirt” did it. Crystal Clear “Boss”.
- Someone made a lot of millions today by tipping the police.
Muslims in Nong Chok
The population of Nong Chok consists of about 85% Muslims, the others being Buddhists, Christians and a big Mon community. There are 43 mosques in Nong Chok, 16 temples and one Catholic church.
Nong Chok, with a land area of 236 sq km, is the biggest of the 50 districts in Metropolitan Bangkok. It’s about 15% of the land area of Bangkok but has about 1% of the population.
Around 1847, there was a mass migration of Muslims from the seven provinces of the Patani Kingdom in the south to settle in Nong Chok. Their descendants live in the area to this day.
