The blast at Erawan shrine, dedicated to Lord Bramha, killed at least 21 and authorities have identified a suspect on the CCTV footage.

The PM has called it the worst attack ever in Thailand and promised to hunt the perpetrators of the attack soon.

Recounting the horror of the blast, one of the eyewitnesses, Sanjeev Vyas, a DJ from Mumbai, India, told the CNN, "It was like this huge gust of wind and debris flying through you... And then I see bodies everywhere, there are cars on fire, there are bikes everywhere. People are screaming."
