Thai police push to extradite terror chief Norouzi Shayan Ali Akbar
Tuesday 06 March 2012
Thai police have said they will push for the suspected mastermind
behind an alleged bomb plot discovered in Bangkok on Valentine's Day to
be extradited from Iran.
Police General Pansiri Prapawat said Norouzi Shayan Ali Akbar was the "key player" who planned the botched attack in Thailand's capital along with four other Iranians.
Gen Pansiri said today that police will also ask the Thai government to request the extradition from Iran of Leila Rohani, who is believed to have helped accommodate the suspects prior to the explosions.
Police Lieutenant General Winai Thongsong said investigators have so far found no links between the suspects and any international terrorist organisations.
Thai police said earlier that the group were targeting Israeli diplomats.
