The arrests were made following a tip-off by Thai authorities.

A second foreign suspect has been arrested in connection with last month's Bangkok bombing, Thailand's Prime Minister confirmed today.

The arrest comes two days after a 28-year-old "foreigner" was detained by police during a raid at a flat in the north of the capital.

The male suspect was arrested in Sa Kaeo province, which is east of Bangkok on the border with Cambodia, Prayuth said.

"We have arrested one more, he is not a Thai," Prayuth told reporters after a weekly cabinet meeting.
