Three detained in connection with Bangkok blast

Three people have been detained in Malaysia in connection with last month’s bombing of a shrine in the Thai capital Bangkok that killed 20 people.

Inspector General Khalid Abu Bakar said a Pakistani national and two Malaysians were detained a few days ago following a tip-off by Thai authorities. One of the Malaysians is a woman.

Malaysian police said they will investigate and work with Thai authorities on the detainees.

The August 17 blast at the Erawan Shrine in the Thai capital killed 20 people, including five Malaysians from one family, and injured more than 120.
