A foreign suspect arrested over last month's horrific Bangkok attack has confessed to delivering a bomb to the man wearing a yellow t-shirt thought to be the bomber, local paper The Nation reported on September 7.

Accordingly, Yusufu Mieraili, whose nationality remains unconfirmed, said he bought bomb-making materials on the internet, made a bomb and delivered it to another man, who was seen on security footage wearing a yellow t-shirt and placing a rucksack under a bench at Erawan shrine moments before the blast. He did all these at the direction of a man called ‘Izaan’, who was believed to have left Thailand on August 16.

Mieraili also said Izaan was the person who issued orders to the bomber and another man wearing a blue t-shirt suspected to be the bomber in the August 18 incident.

Yusufu Mieraili, caught in Sa Kaeo, a province sharing border with Cambodia, on September 1, also admitted to a charge of possessing explosives, national police spokesman Prawut Thavornsiri told reporters.

The same day, Thai police issued two new arrest warrants for a foreign man of unknown nationality called Abdullah Abdullahman and an unnamed foreigner in connection with the Erawan shrine bombing.

The explosion at the Erawan shrine in a busy shopping district on August 17 took at least 20 lives, including many foreign tourists.-VNA
