Bangkok attack: Did 'Koran stickers' mark escape route?

Thai police searching for man documented on security camera posting 'Sajeal' sticker in Bangkok. Did Iranian terrorists use stickers to mark Israeli targets or escape route?

Thai police are searching for a man documented on security cameras posting a sticker with the word "Sejeal" written on it in a Bangkok street. Police are looking into the possibility that the sticker is connected to the terror attack which saw five people injured last week. Thai authorities initially thought the stickers were meant to mark Israeli targets.


The word "Sejeal" is taken from a chapter in the Koran that describes the year Prophet Muhammad was born. A police source said that a bank's security camera documented the suspect posting the sticker.

Thai authorities suspect that the stickers were meant to mark an escape route for the terrorists behind last week's attack. Earlier this week, police traced a motorcycle which allegedly served the Iranian plotters. A "Sejeal" sticker was found underneath the motorcycle seat. Similar stickers were found in other areas of Bangkok including near the Israeli embassy building.

Also this week, the Bangkok Post reported that the terrorists used the sticker to mark possible targets. Suspect Mohammad Hazaei told the investigators about the stickers.


The word "Sejeal" may also refer to an Iranian ballistic missile. Nevertheless, Thailand's Defense Minister Sukampol Suwannathat said the stickers may not mean anything and must not distract from the investigation. He stressed that Thailand is in no hurry to point any fingers.
