Thailand's military junta spokesman Col. Winthai Suvaree says that this week's deadly bombing in Bangkok was "unlikely to be linked to international terrorism."

He also said that Chinese tourists, who were among the victims, were not the "direct target."

"The security agencies have collaborated with intelligence agencies from a lot of countries and have come to the same preliminary conclusion that the incident is unlikely to be linked to international terrorism," he said.

At least 20 people were killed and more than 120 injured in Monday evening's blast at Erawan Shrine, a popular tourist site that is known to attract Chinese visitors.

On Tuesday, police issued an arrest warrant for the prime suspect, describing him as an unidentified "foreign" man.
