Meanwhile, the Turkish connection boosted a theory the suspects may be part of a group seeking to avenge Thailand's forced repatriation of ethnic Uighurs to China in July.
The Turkish Embassy in Thailand also previously questioned the reports claiming that its nationals were involved in the Aug. 17 bombing of Bangkok that killed 20 people.
A statement posted in early September on the embassy's website said it has not received any official notification from Thai authorities concerning arrest warrants issued for at least three persons believed to Turkish nationals. It also quotes a Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman noting that the embassy has stated that a suspect arrested with a fake Turkish passport is not Turkish.
On the Thai front, security officials on Sunday continued the works to identify the members of the network believed responsible for the bombing and police raided an apartment that was suspected of having links to a bombing suspect. Police said no bomb-making materials were found in the apartment, which is in a building that serves as a hostel for women. Thai media reported that the two women tenants and a guest were taken away for questioning.Two other key suspects are also in custody, charged with possession of illegal explosives. One of them was captured from an apartment on the outskirts of Bangkok where police also discovered bomb-making material. The other was caught near the border between Thailand and Cambodia, and police said his fingerprints were found on a container with explosive material confiscated from the apartment.
