Thailand Shrine Bomb Suspect Held At Airport

BANGKOK: The Thai woman implicated in the deadly Erawan Shrine bomb attack is now in Thai police custody.

Wanna Suansan was arrested upon her arrival at Suvarnabhumi Airport yesterday.

Police then took her to the National Police Office headquarters where Deputy National Police Commissioner Pol General Srivara Ransibrahmanakul interrogated her.

Wanna is among the suspects wanted in Thailand for the fatal explosion that rocked the Erawan Shrine in the heart of Bangkok on Aug 17, 2015, causing huge casualties.

Wanna, a resident of Thailand’s south, and her husband suspiciously left for Turkey just before the bomb explosion occurred.

Last month, Wanna’s relatives urged Thai authorities to help bring her back to Thailand even if that meant she would have to face trial for her alleged role in the bomb attack. — The Nation / Asia News Network
