Bangkok: Thai police on Friday said they were
searching for two more suspects, including an explosives
expert, as the criminal inquiry into the suspected Iranian
plot targeting Israelis overseas with magnetised bombs
expanded.

The countrywide lookout for more suspects came as media
reports said that Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak who made
an unannounced trip to Singapore airshow may have been the
prime target.

But Thailand`s police chief Priewpan Damapong denied
reports that terrorists were targeting Barak who was scheduled
to change planes in Thailand on Wednesday but later cancelled
the plan following the bombings on Tuesday.
