Bangkok bomb blast :Thailand official released CCTV footage of suspect

Police investigating the Bangkok bomb blast have released CCTV footage of a suspect reportedly spotted placing a bag at the scene moments before the explosion that killed at least 21 people and injured more than 120 others.

Images show the man carrying a rucksack near the Erawan Shrine in the popular Ratchaprasong district of the capital then leaving the area without it around 15 minutes before the blast.
Thai junta chief Prayut Chan-O-Cha said the suspect, who was a yellow T-shirt and thick-rimmed glasses, was believed to be from an 'anti-government group based in Thailand's north-east' - the heartland of the kingdom's anti-coup Red Shirt movement.
He described the bombing as the 'worst ever attack' on his country.
'Today there is a suspect who appeared on CCTV but it's not clear... we are looking for this guy,' he said,
