Police spokesman Lt. Gen. Prawut Thavornsiri says in a tweet that 1 million baht — equivalent to $28,080 — is being offered for any word on the bomber or bombers thought to have planted the explosive device that went off at a downtown shrine on a busy Monday evening, killing 20 people and wounding nearly 130 others.

Photos of one suspect have been released to the public. They show a man in a yellow T-shirt and carrying a backpack.

National chief of police Somyot Poompanmoung says "he didn't do it alone for sure. It's a network."

Investigators believe a man seen in security video wearing a yellow T-shirt and carrying a backpack set off the explosion. Police have released several photos of the man, with and without the backpack, and are asking the public to provide information about him.
