Another Iranian arrested in Bangkok bombing


Another Iranian national was arrested in connection with a bombing in Bangkok.

Thai police over the weekend brought in Madani Seyed Mehrded, 33, upon discovering that he was in Thailand on an expired visa.

Call logs showed that Mehrded had been in regular phone contact with two of the other suspects, including one whose legs were blown off in a Feb. 14 explosion outside a rented house in Bangkok in which another bomb had exploded, Reuters reported.

In addition, police said that Mehrded had been waiting in front of the building where the Israeli Embassy is located on the day of the explosions.

Mehrded denied involvement in the explosions.

Thai police have said the bombs that exploded in Bangkok are similar to the one used to attack the car of an Israeli diplomat’s wife in New Delhi, India, on Feb. 13.
