Police Hunt Thai Bomb Suspect Seen On CCTV

The bomb that killed 22 people in Bangkok is not typical of that used by Muslim rebels in the country's south, an Army boss says.

Police in Thailand are searching for a suspect who was seen on CCTV near a shrine where a bomb went off on Monday killing 22 people, the country's Prime Minister has said.

It comes as the blast was described by the country's army chief as not a tactic used by separatists from the country's south.

Several foreigners were among those killed and more than 120 injured when the device detonated at the Erawan shrine in Bangkok.
