BANGKOK, THAILAND – Police in Thailand released a CCTV video a man they would like to talk with in connection with Tuesday’s bombing that killed at least 22 people in Bangkok.

The video shows a man in a yellow t-shirt wearing a backpack that he removes and leaves on a bench before walking off and into the street.

Police don’t know if he is from Thailand or another country. No one has claimed responsibility for the first attack of its kind in Bangkok’s history, a blast that also left about 120 people injured.

The attack hit a shrine in central Bangkok, a popular site for Hindus, Buddhists, and Sikhs.

It’s also a big draw for tourists, at a busy intersection near one of the world’s largest shopping malls.

A second blast came less than 24 hours later, this one near a pier in Bangkok.

Police believe someone tried to blow up the bridge with an explosive device, like a grenade, but missed.

No one was hurt, but it didn’t do anything to calm the nerves of people experiencing terror attacks for the first time.
