General Prayut said the male suspect was apprehended while trying to cross the border at Ban Pa Rai in Thailand's Aranyaprathet district in Sa Kaeo province.
    
"It's true. He has been arrested at Sa Kaeo checkpoint," Prayut said, adding, "We are interrogating him. He is a main suspect and a foreigner."

The Premier did not disclose the nationality of the man. The person is reportedly being flown by helicopter to Bangkok.
    
According to media reports, the man is the one seen in CCTV footage on August 17 wearing a yellow shirt and leaving a backpack reportedly containing the bomb behind at the shrine,
a popular tourist attraction.
    
Thai police on Saturday arrested the first suspect in the case, an unidentified foreigner.
    
The arrested man was carrying a fake Turkish passport but his identity remained unclear as Turkish diplomats said they did not believe he was a Turk.
