Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said on Tuesday police had so far arrested nine suspects in connection with the bombings and arson in Bangkok last week.

Speaking to reporters after the weekly Cabinet meeting, Prayut – who also serves as Defence Minister – referred to significant progress in the investigation.

He said the nine suspects in custody were being interrogated, but declined to elaborate, saying only that they would be dealt with judiciously based on the evidence.

“The government will handle the case the best it can,” Prayut said. “I would like to thank the officials and the people for providing information to the authorities.

“Maintaining safety for life and property must start with the people. The people and communities can help the government by taking photos [of suspicious objects or activity].”
