A man has been arrested in relation to an arson attack on a supermarket in Thailand.

The attack was one of a series of strikes on popular tourist resorts that local police say were orchestrated by one person.

No group has claimed responsibility for the series of bomb and arson attacks that killed four people and wounded dozens.

Police believe that a single person is giving orders for the attacks.

Police chief Pongsapat Pongcharoen told reporters: "These acts were undertaken by a group in many areas simultaneously, following orders from one individual."
