New information since yesterday's bombing indicates more sad, startling facts.
At least 20 people were killed in the blast, around half of them foreign tourists, and over 120 people were injured.
We still don't know who was responsible for this act, which the Thai prime minister has called "the worst ever attack" on Thailand. However, A CCTV camera near the site of the bombing shows footage of a man in a bright yellow t-shirt entering the shrine, carefully removing his backpack, and leaving without it moments later.
This was the precise spot where the bomb exploded, according to police.
So far, the man has not been identified, but authorities say they are "quite close," and are pursuing additional leads as well.
My heart breaks for the Thai people... I hope they find strength, courage, and unity in this difficult time.
