Thai police are hunting for 26-year-old Wanna Suansan ... and another man believed to be in his 40s. Authorities issued the arrest warrants for the two after they raided an apartment block at the weekend and found possible bomb-making materials. Police chief Somyot Poompanmuang says a network of at least 10 people, including Thais and foreigners, are responsible for the attack. (SOUNDBITE)(Thai) POLICE CHIEF SOMYOT POOMPANMUANG SAYING: "First, there is the issue of the route in and out of Thailand. Second, the preparation of accommodations. Third, the route of escape. Fourth, the process of the bomb and components. Foreigners alone cannot do all of this. There must be Thai people supporting them and involved (in the process)." Police on Saturday arrested a 28-year-old foreigner but haven't confirmed his identity or nationality. Authorities have been criticised for an investigation that has uncovered few clues about who was behind the blast on August 17th that killed 20 people. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack on the Bangkok shrine.
