Thai police give themselves cash reward for arresting bombing suspect without help

Police in Thailand have given themselves a cash reward for doing their job by arresting a suspect in the Bangkok bombing two weeks ago.

The bomb, which killed 20 people, went off at the Erawan Shrine and led to an appeal for help from the public with a 3million baht (£54,000) reward on offer.

But fortunately for officers in the Thai police force, the public's help wasn't needed so they've given it to themselves.



However, their self-congratulations may be a little premature.

They are still looking for a Thai woman and a foreign man and have turned to the public for their help once more.

National police chief Somyot Poompanmoung said he was taking the unusual step of giving the reward to the police force both to motivate his officers and to show that Thailand's police are good at their work.

'This money should be given to officials who did their job,' he said at a news conference as aides brought out stacks of 1,000-baht notes. It wasn't immediately clear how the money would be distributed to police officers.
