What the What?

What the What?

During a news conference Thai police said they have identified the motive for the deadly bombing at the Erawan Shrine in Bangkok last August: Human trafficking. Police Chief Somyot Pumpanmuang said authorities had "destroyed" a human trafficking network, and the bombing was revenge for that -- not for Thailand sending Muslim Uighur people back to China as was once suspected. A man they arrested in August was the man spotted in surveillance footage from the shrine wearing a yellow shirt, and has confessed to his role in the bombing. Another man was arrested who used a cell phone to trigger the bomb. So, since the police themselves solved the crime, they then saw fit to give themselves 3 million bhat, or $83,000 in reward money. No kidding. (Reuters)
