Woman linked to Min Buri explosion out on bail

A woman believed to have some connection to the deadly explosion in Bangkok's Min Buri district last month has been granted temporary release, the Department of Special Investigation said yesterday.

DSI director-general Tarit Pengdith said Amphorn Jaikorn was implicated in a previous explosion at an apartment in Nonthaburi in 2010, during the red-shirt protests in Bangkok. This time, she had only been detained and questioned by police about her alleged role in the Min Buri incident that killed two men on a motorcycle carrying a pipe bomb, he said.

Tarit explained that she was released on a Bt400,000 bail guarantee as there was a lack of evidence.
