Suspect in Thai karoke pub attack arrested
A man was arrested in Narathiwat province for his alleged involvement in an
terrorist insurgency attack on a karaoke pub and a restaurant in the province earlier this month. The suspect was identified as Kareeya Pi, one of five men who opened fire on the pub and the restaurant on January 9. Four were wounded in the attack.
Thai marines conducted a raid in Ngee Ngor district and nabbed the suspect at his house after monitoring him and other suspects for days after the attack.
Capt Somkiat Ponprayoon, commander of the marine unit, claimed Kareeya confessed during interrogation to being one of the gang and to being responsible for identifying the venue and cooperating with other suspects. He identified two of the other four as Asem Bueraheng and Maroemuelee Kajaekasor, both of whom are now hiding in Ruesoh district.
