A Swedish-Lebanese man suspected of plotting to carry out terrorist attacks led Thai police to a shophouse on the outskirts of Bangkok where they found hundreds of boxes of bomb-making materials.
The man, Attis Hussein, was arrested last Friday on suspicion of being a member of a Hezbollah cell planning to attack tourist sites frequented by Israelis, and was charged by Thai police with possessing illegal substances.
Hussein claimed that “the bomb-making materials were not for terrorist attacks in Thailand, but were intended to be smuggled out of the country,” national police chief Priewpan Damapong said.Jewish Press Staff
