Bangkok, the 4th of July 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Thai police in the eastern province of Sa Kaeo were notified yesterday of the arrested of wanted bombing suspects Warisriya Boonsom and Korbchai Boonplod in Siem Reap. The arrest was confirmed by the Thai consulate in Phnom Penh where the suspects are expected to be relinquished by the Cambodian authorities on Monday.

The pair had fled Thailand on the 23rd of June following an organised bombing incident at the Bhumjaithai Party headquarters in Bangkok. The Bhumjaithai party are the leading faction in the six party coalition government.

The bomb was fixed onto/inside a 15kg gas bottle located on a local fruit vendor’s street cart and was detonated remotely. The group responsible for the attack had hired the owner to park his cart in front of the Bhumjaithai party headquarters in Bangkok on the 22nd of June.

Anek Singkhuntod [26], the fruit vendor, was seriously injured in the explosion. He allegedly admitted that he had been hired to leave the rambutan pushcart near the party office but had no knowledge of the explosive device.

Thai police suspect the fugitive pair to have orchestrated the attacks in Bangkok after the arrest of two Red Shirt guards, Kampon Kamkong and Dejpon Bhudjong in Chanta-Buri and Chon-Buri.

Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva confirmed that an official release of the details and motives behind the random attack will be released pending the completion of a full investigation.
