Bangkok blast suspects ‘targeting Israeli diplomats’

THAI police say they believe the men detained after prematurely exploding a bomb in Bangkok on Tuesday were intending to target two Israeli diplomats, BBC reports.

They gave no further details of who the individual targets were.

Two men, said to be Iranian, remain in custody in Bangkok. A third man is in custody in Malaysia. A fourth suspect is said to be on the run.

Israel has blamed Iran for the three blasts, but Tehran has denied any role.
