Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said Friday that the Erawan Shrine bombing might be related to the Uighur smuggling.
“Possibly. But all were possible. It might be related our own problem or related to a smuggling movement,” Prayut said when reporters asked him whether the attack was related to Uighur smuggling gang.
Prayut said he did not want Thailand to be a transit point of irregular movements of migrants because conflicts could later occur.
Prayut added that the mass media should avoid making wild speculation about the case or they could further complicate the investigation.
