Suspects name alleged bomb mastermind

Two recently arrested suspects have identified Rorki Dorloh as a mastermind behind bomb-attack plots, according to the 41st Ranger Regiment.

"They have provided useful information," the regiment's deputy commander, Lt-Colonel Sittisak Jenbanjong, said yesterday.

The two suspects, Maruwan Salae and Ayu Ma-ae, were arrested last week while allegedly working on bomb-making materials at a house in Yala.

According to Sittisak, both have now implicated Rorki, accusing the man of ordering bombs.Rorki, 30, is facing arrest warrants in a number of security cases already. In one, he allegedly played a role in an attack on rangers in which five troops died and three others were injured.

Meanwhile, a former ranger was shot dead at his home in Pattani yesterday morning.Police believe the shooting was carried out to spread unrest in the deep South.
