Police in Thailand on Saturday located the motorcycle allegedly used by Iranian terrorists in the botched attack on Israeli targets, the Bangkok Post reported over the weekend.
A police official said Masoud Sedaghatzadeh, the Iranian who fled Thailand and was apprehended in Malaysia on Wednesday, purchased the Honda Wave motorcycle for 26,000 baht (about $844) from a shop in the Klong Tan area.

An owner of an electrical appliances repair shop alerted police after he noticed the motorcycle had been parked in front of his shop for a long time, the Bangkok Post reported.
Motorcycle allegedly used by Iranian terrorists
Police sappers and forensics experts rushed to the scene and examined the motorcycle, the report said, adding that police found a sticker with the word "SEJEAL" under the motorcycle's seat.
A passage in the Quran refers to a miracle when birds from heaven dropped "sejeal stones" at an army on elephants from Yemen who were attempting to kill Muhammad, scaring the animals and saving the prophet's life. Palestinian terrorists have referred to their rockets and mortars used to attack Israel as "sejeal stones."
Five people (four locals and one of the Iranian terrorists) were injured last week when three blasts rocked a residential neighborhood in Bangkok.
The terrorist, Saeid Moradi, lost both of his legs when he hurled two grenades. He is being treated at Chulalongkorn Hospital. Mohammad Khazaei, the third suspect, was detained at Suvarnabhumi airport.
The Bangkok Post said the fourth suspect, Leila Rohani, has fled to Iran, and police are seeking an arrest warrant for a fifth suspect who was seen on surveillance camera footage near a house just before an explosion ripped through it on Tuesday afternoon.
