Arrest warrants issued for bomb plot

AN official at the Ministry of Interior on Tuesday said that his ministry has received an arrest warrant in connection with Friday's foiled bomb plot that appeared to target the Defence Ministry and a state-run television channel.

"We now have the arrest warrant in hand," said Khieu Sopheak, spokesman for the ministry who then declined to comment further on the case.

Khieu Kanharith, government spokesman and information minister, told reporters Sunday that police had identified two suspects.

"[The perpetrators] placed these explosive devices to scare people from attending the anniversary of January 7," he said.
