Evidence sufficient to charge bomb suspect

BANGKOK (AP) — Thai police say they believe they have gathered enough evidence to prosecute the person they accuse of carrying out last month’s bombing at a landmark in the Thai capital that killed 20 people.

Police spokesman Prawut Thavornsiri said that with evidence gathered from witnesses and surveillance cameras, a suspect can be charged in court. Prawut was referring to the first suspect arrested in the case several weeks ago, identified as Adem Karadeg and believed to be from Turkey. He was arrested at an apartment on the outskirts of Bangkok.
