At least 20 people died and scores were injured in the attack on the Erawan Shrine, a Hindu site which is also popular with Thai Buddhists.Thai police say the main suspect is a young man seen entering the shrine with a backpack then leaving without it.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha has said the incident was the worst ever attack on Thailand.

In a separate attack on Tuesday, an explosive device was thrown at a pier in Bangkok. No-one was hurt, but the authorities have not ruled out a link between the incidents.
