UK Mirror (h/t Barbara R) Officers raided an apartment in northern Bangkok this morning and found possible bomb-making equipment. National police spokesman Prawut Thavornsiri said the suspect – named by authorities as Adem Karadag – was a foreign national who “looks like the one we are looking for.”
As images emerged of Karadag in handcuffs, Thavornsiri added: “They also found a lot of materials which can be used to make bombs.” Police say Karadag is Turkish, and several Thai TV channels showed an image of a passport reportedly found in the apartment during the police raid.
