On Monday evening, during a crowded moment in Erawan Shrine, Bangkok, with worshippers and tourists at the spot, a blast struck with no claim of rationality.
Unfortunately 20 people lost their lives as a result of the blast, including a minimum of 11 foreigners from all around the world, and more than 68 were left in critical condition. On Tuesday another blast followed with equally devastating effects including incinerated motorcycles at one of the city’s busiest intersections. As a result of the second blast, the tourism industry was hit by a shockwave.
Thai monks were praying on Wednesday to reopen the Shrine that was hit by the deadly bombing. As it looks, it will reopen very soon since the crime scene has been cleared and the iron railings are in the process of being fixed.
However, this does not stop the investigators searching for the suspect that was caught on footage. As they stated, they are offering one million baht (S$39,540) reward for any information that will lead to the arrest of the man seen calmly planting the backpack before the explosion.
