A manhunt is underway in Thailand for a man authorities believe may be responsible for the deadly blast in the capital on Monday night which has killed at least 20 people.
A review of CCTV footage has revealed a man did walk into a packed religious shrine and placeda backpack under a bench just minutes before the explosion.
The attack devastated one of the Thai capital’s most popular tourism hubs, tearing through a crowd of worshippers at the Hindu shrine close to five-star hotels and upscale shopping malls.
