Thai authorities working with Israel arrested a Lebanese man alleged to have plotted a bombing attack.
“A Lebanese suspect from the Hezbollah group has been taken into custody by Thai officials and police are investigating further,” Chalerm Yumbumrung, the deputy prime minister, was quoted as saying Friday in an interview with Reuters. “Following concern raised by the Israeli embassy about a possible attack by a group of Lebanese terrorists in Bangkok, Thai police officials had been coordinating with Israeli officials since before the New Year.”
The arrest came after the U.S. embassy warned Americans of the possibility of attacks on areas in Thailand where tourists gather.
