    Thailand: Military court charges two over Bangkok blast suspects

    Nov 24, Bangkok: Two policemen have charged of carrying out a deadly bombing at a Bangkok shrine on August that left 20 people dead and more than 120 injured.

    A military court in Thailand has charged Adem Karadag and Yusufu Miefaili on Tuesday in connection with the August 17 blast at Erawan Shrine.
    Thai officials said there was no political or religious motive behind the attack.

    The blast was revenge by a people-smuggling network against Thai authorities for breaking up their operation.

    The two have been held at an army base since their arrests in August and September. They are being tried at a military court, where cases of national security have been handled since the army seized power in a coup last May, Al Jazeera reported.

    That raises "a lot of question marks about the process", our correspondent said, adding that access have been "very limited" although defence lawyers can go and visit.
