The bomb that blew up in Bangkok last week “looks like TNT”, according to Thailand’s national police spokesman.
Spokesman Prawuth Thavornsiri said it was still not clear if the bomb that killed 20 people on August 17 was made of TNT or C4, a plastic explosive, but based on the experience of the bomb disposal experts, “they say it looks like TNT”.
Police have not yet received chemical test results. Mr Prawuth said investigators are trying to find other pieces of the bomb to analyse.
More than a week after the bombing, police appear to be no closer to tracking down suspects or determining a motive for the attack.
