New Delhi: Security agencies, probing
Monday`s attack on an Israeli diplomat here, have received
information on similar strikes in Thailand and Georgia in the
past few days.

"Government agencies got information from Georgia and
Thailand regarding organisations and persons. The forensic
experts are working on these leads. Analysis is also on to
match things used in the Tbilisi and Bangkok strikes with
those found in the Delhi incident," an official source said.

According to officials monitoring the case, forensic
experts are trying to ascertain whether there are any
similarities in the explosion here with the two blasts.

Police in Georgian capital Tbilisi had thwarted an attack
on Monday when they disabled an explosive device found in the
car of an Israeli embassy employee.

Three Iranian youths were arrested in Thailand and
Malaysia in the past two days after the explosive device went
off accidentally in Bangkok.

According to Bangkok police, the three were planning to
attack Israeli diplomats.

Israeli diplomat Tal Yehoshua Koren, who is the wife of
that country`s Defence Attache, was seriously injured when
terrorists triggered an explosive device on the vehicle
carrying her on Monday.

She is at present admitted to a private hospital here.
Bangkok Police said two homemade "sticky" bombs found at
the blast site on February 14 matched the devices planted on
Israeli diplomatic cars in India and Georgia.
