Police in Thailand have issued an eighth arrest warrant in connection with last month’s deadly bomb attack at a popular Bangkok shrine.

Turkish national Emrah Davutoglu is the husband of another suspect, Wanna Suansan, who is said to be in Turkey.

Officers now say finger-prints found on suspected bomb-making equipment at the weekend match those of an unidentified man arrested in Bangkok on Tuesday.

Thai Police spokesperson Prawut Thawornsiri thinks both Thai nationals and foreigners were behind the attack. “It might be a group who lost out on profits after the police began blocking the illegal people smuggling networks in and out of the country.” he told reporters.
