Report: 4th suspect in Thai terror attack flees to Iran

Thailand's immigration police chief says Bangkok cannot ask Tehran to surrender suspect since Thailand has no extradition treaty with Iran

A woman suspected of being involved in Tuesday's terror attack in Bangkok is said to have fled to Iran, Thai website The Nation reported.


Leila Rohani is the fourth Iranian wanted by Bangkok authorities in connection with the blast. She is suspected of arranging to rent the hideout where the three other Iranian suspects stayed and where the explosion took place, apparently by accident.

Thailand's Immigration Police Commissioner Lt.-Gen. Wiboon Bangtamai said that the country could not ask Tehran to surrender the suspect, since Thailand has no extradition treaty with Iran.


Wiboon said that Rohani's absence would not affect the legal proceedings against her, adding that "Thai police have enough evidence, such as footage from security cameras and bomb material found in the house," to indict her.
