Manhunt on for Bangkok Bombers

News is moving quickly on Monday’s terrorist bombing at Bangkok’s Erawan shrine. So far, the attack killed at least 22 people and wounded over 100. A suspect was identified through CCTV footage. Reports now say there may be two more bombing suspects. As Thai citizens tried to make sense of Monday’s attack, yesterday, another bomb was thrown from a bridge in Bangkok. There were no injuries reported in the second incident, but police say the bombings were similar. Thailand’s Police Chief stated he believed the bombs were part of a coordinated attack by a terrorist network. We’ll get the latest from Pailin Wedel, an independent journalist, based in Bangkok.
