Bangkok Bombing Reward Climbs to $85K

Thailand has tripled the reward offered for information on the perpetrators of this week’s Bangkok shrine bombing to $85,000, after two suspects were released after interrogation. Officials are also backtracking on their initial suggestions that the attack, which killed 20 people and injured hundreds, was the work of an international terror group. “We still have no information on international terror groups and think that there is no link to international terrorism,” the police chief said. “What is clear is that it was intended to discredit the government, destroy confidence, and make tourists scared and not travel to Thailand.”
