Police hunting for the perpetrators of Thailand’s deadliest bombing have arrested a second foreign suspect, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said on Tuesday.

The male suspect was arrested in Sa Kaeo province, which is east of Bangkok on the border with Cambodia, Prayuth said.

“We have arrested one more, he is not a Thai,” Prayuth told reporters after a weekly cabinet meeting.

Prime Minister Chan-ocha described him as the main person in the bombing but did not directly say he is the person suspected of actually planting the bomb.
