Thai Police Release Photo Of Bangkok Bomber

BANGKOK (AP) – A Thai police spokesman says a man seen in security video wearing a yellow T-shirt and carrying a backpack is believed to have set off the explosion at a central Bangkok shrine that killed 20 people and injured more than 100.

“The yellow shirt guy is not just the suspect. He is the bomber,” Police Lt. Gen. Prawut Thavornsiri told The Associated Press.

Prawut earlier said the man “is a suspect” and had released several photos of him, with and without the backpack, on a social media platform.

The images were apparently taken from closed-circuit video at the Erawan Shrine before the bombing occurred around 7 p.m. Monday near a busy Bangkok intersection.
