Puduraya blast may be work of southern Thai militants Bernama, Via NST

KUALA LUMPUR, SAT.:
Police are not ruling out the possibility that last night’s bomb explosion at the concourse of the Puduraya bus terminal here could be the work of militants from southern
Thailand. Dang Wangi OCPD ACP Muhammad Zulkarnain Abdul Rahman said police are conducting thorough investigations to establish whether militants were responsible for the incident in which a 11-year-old girl was injured. “There are many possibilities on who created this mess. Many things crossed our mind. We are investigating the incident from many angles.

“Maybe it is the work of an insane person to scare away the public or someone’s plan to tarnish Malaysia’s image as this year being the Visit Malaysia Year,” he told Bernama after a briefing by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan for state chief police officers, state CID chiefs and OCPDs from throughout the country. Zulkarnain also said police were waiting for the chemical report from the forensics department to determine the actual content of the home-made bomb. “We are viewing the two closed-circuit television cameras installed near the bus platforms. We’ve questioned several eye-witnesses but have not ascertain the motive of the incident,” he said. Preliminary investigations reveal a bag containing a tin of glue and a motorcycle battery was tied to an empty mineral water bottle.

Bomb the work of amateurs; NST, KUALA LUMPUR, Sun.: 17 Jun 2007

The homemade bomb which exploded at the Puduraya bus terminal on Thursday has been described as crude and amateurish, and not the work of professionals. Acting city police chief SAC I Zulhasnan Najib Baharuddin said the bomb was believed to be a combination of saltpetre and motorcycle battery, something easily learnt from the Internet. "We are still gathering information and have several teams working on the case, including the bomb disposal unit and a forensic team. "Nothing has been established yet, the motive and culprit remain unknown although we are working round-the-clock," he said. Zulhasnan said the public should not be alarmed, adding, however, that they should alert the police if they noticed anything suspicious or wires attached to packages or boxes. Saltpetre is a salty-tasting white powder generally used to preserve meats. However, it is also used in the production of explosives.
