A YOUNG SUSPECT has confessed to his alleged involvement in the Phuket bombings – part of a deadly spate of arson and bomb attacks in seven provinces on August 11 and 12 – police investigating the case said Wednesday.



Muhammad Muhi, who is in his 20s, was initially apprehended by the Army and handed over to police. He has been held at the Nakhon Si Thammarat Correctional Institution for Young Offenders since October 20. 

Following an initial report of his confession, deputy national police chief Pol General Sriwara Rangsipramanakul led a team to further interrogate Muhammad, a native of Pattani’s Nong Chik district.
