Two men questioned over the deadly bomb attack on a Yala fresh food market on Monday have denied being involved. One of them did however admitted to being involving in a shooting attack in Yala years ago, a source at a national security agency revealed on Thursday.

The two men, who were not named, were picked up for questioning in Pattani’s Khok Pho and Yarang districts as part of the investigation into Monday’s attack.

A bomb hidden in a motorcycle parked in front of a food stall in Pimonchai Market killed three people and injured 28 others.

The two suspects were grilled at 41st Ranger Task Force headquarters in Yala’s Raman district.

The source said the investigation had made good progress thanks to security camera recordings catching a pair of men fleeing the market on a motorcycle and tracking their escape route.

Several other people appear in the recordings to be serving as lookouts for the bombers.

The authorities were gathering evidence against those seen in the recordings and would summon them for questioning, the source added.
