Thai blasts: 3rd Iranian suspect held in Malaysia

Masoud Sedaghat Zadeh was arrested in Kuala Lumpur after the Malaysian authorities received a tip off from Thailand.



Bangkok: One of the Iranian suspects in
yesterday`s triple explosions here was arrested in Malaysia
today after he fled from there following the blasts.

31-year-old Masoud Sedaghat Zadeh was arrested this
afternoon in Kuala Lumpur after the Malaysian authorities
received a tip off from Thailand, a security official here
said.

The suspect was scheduled to fly to Tehran later today.
He had initially booked a flight to leave for the Iranian
capital on February 25.

He slipped through Thai immigration authorities, who did
not know his identity then.

Thai deputy police chief Pansiri Prapawat had earlier
said that Zadeh left Bangkok for Kuala Lumpur yesterday
following the triple explosions.

He was one of the four Iranians police linked to the
explosions.

The fourth Iranian, a woman, was still at large and could
have left the country. She had rented the house for the
suspects.

The two other Iranian suspects were in police custody.
28-year-old Saerb Moradi, who set off the three blasts,
was in hospital after his legs were blown off by a bomb which
he tried to hurl at police.

Another Iranian, Mohammad Hazaei, 42, was arrested at
Suvarnabhumi international Airport here when he tried to
escape to Malaysia.

Police have found several electronic devices from their
rented house that could be used to make explosives.
