A series of bombing and arson attacks in southern Thailand that killed four people and wounded dozens was "clearly connected", Thai police said on Sunday, and an arrest warrant had been issued for a man in relation to one of the arson attacks.
The attacks on Thursday and Friday targeted popular tourist destinations.
"These acts were undertaken by a group in many areas simultaneously, following orders from one individual," Pongsapat Pongcharoen, a deputy national police chief, told reporters.
The arrest warrant was issued in relation to an arson attack on a supermarket in Nakhon Si Thammarat early on Thursday, Pongsapat said.
