A bomb explosions series that shook the Thai capital, a tourist spot, Bangkok, when the country hosted an Association of Southeast Asian Nations ASEAN meeting last week were linked to southern separatism, Defense and the Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan said Tuesday, as police chased more suspects following the arrest of two men.

There were at least nine bomb explosions or attempts to blow up the device last Friday that left four people injured as the Bangkok city organized top diplomats including US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

Prawit told the media that last week’s Bangkok explosions were “linked to a group of southern separatists.”

“We are investigating how they traveled, from where they got bombs,” he said.

Former junta leader and Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha said there were nine suspects still on run.

“An investigation is still underway to bring them to court,” he said. Two men from the southern province were arrested last week several hours after a wire and steel ball were found in an inactive device outside the police headquarters here.

The attack came as anger erupted following the arrest of a suspected separatist from South Thailand’s Muslim majority, who was found in a coma in a military camp where human rights groups claimed abuse.

A Thai preliminary investigation led by the military said Abdulloh Esormusor, 34, in the infamous Inkayuth detention centre in Pattani province, where hours later he was found unconscious and taken to hospital.

An army-led probe announced there were “no traces of assault and no bruises”, but the severe brain swelling could have been due to an aneurysm or suffocation.

“Doctors recommended that the swollen brain could be caused by… suffocation or a lack of oxygen to the brain,” said the statement released on July 26 by a committee made up of army and police officials, as well as NGOs.
