Malaysia says 3 arrested in connection with Bangkok blast

KUALA LUMPUR (Malaysia): Malaysia’s police chief says a Pakistani and two Malaysians have been detained in connection with last month’s bombing of a shrine in Bangkok that killed 20 people.

Inspector general Khalid Abu Bakar told reporters on Monday that the three were detained a few days ago following a tip-off by Thai authorities. He said one of the Malaysians is a woman.

He said Malaysian police 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.

He did not give details or say when the three will be formally charged, or what the charges would be.
