KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Police say a third Iranian suspect sought after explosive blasts in Bangkok has been arrested in Malaysia.
The statement from Malaysian federal police said Masoud Sedaghatzadeh was being investigated for terrorism-related activities linked to the blasts in Thailand’s capital a day earlier.
Spokesman Ramli Yoosuf said police could not give further details about where or how he had been arrested Wednesday or whether Sedaghatzadeh would be extradited.
Thailand says the three men tried to flee when explosives detonated by mistake in a home they rented. One man was seriously wounded and another was arrested in Bangkok.
Israel says the arrests and attacks elsewhere against its diplomats were evidence of covert Iranian plots.
