Police chief says motive behind Hua Hin bombs still unclear


The Royal Thai Police chief has yet to conclude the motive behind explosions in the tourist city of Hua Hin as more evidence is still needed he said.


Police Chief Pol. Gen. Chaktip Chaijinda traveled to Hua Hin this week to follow up on the investigation after he had been instructed by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and Defense Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan to monitor the investigation closely.

He was informed during his meeting with local officials Tuesday of the progress of the investigation.  However, the police chief said it is still too early to conclude why the attack was carried out as police officers are still trying to collect more evidence.

The police are expected to seek arrest warrants once it has become clear who orchestrated the explosions. Pol. Gen. Chaktip also assured local people and tourists of their safety while urging them to return to their normal lives.
