Thai investigators do not know if the man suspected of bombing a Bangkok shrine is still in the country, police said on Wednesday.

Police chief Somyot Pumpanmuang told reporters: "He didn't do it alone, for sure. It's a network."

Chief Pumpanmuang said it was not clear if a small second explosion on Tuesday was linked to the Erawan shrine attack.
