Thailand deports London bomb suspect: police source
( Reuters ) - A Briton wanted in connection with failed car bomb plots in London has been found by police in Thailand and sent back to the UK, a senior Thai police officer said on Wednesday.
The man, a 30-year-old Arab businessman with a British passport, arrived in Bangkok on June 16 and was deported to Britain on Monday, the officer, who declined to be identified, told Reuters.
"We were asked by British authorities to look for this man suspected of being involved in the London attack. We found him, brought him to the airport and put him on the plane to England," the officer said.
Two car bombs primed to explode in London's bustling theatre and nightclub district were discovered early on June 29. The following day a jeep crashed into the terminal building at Glasgow airport in Scotland and burst into flames.
Officials at the British embassy in Bangkok declined immediate comment.
