Thai court charges two over Erawan bomb blast in Bangkok

Two men have been charged by a military court in Thailand in connection with the bombing of a shrine in the capital Bangkok.

Twenty people were killed in the attack on the Erawan Shrine in August.

Authorities say Bilal Mohammed, also known as Adem Karadag, and Yusuf Mieraili have both confessed to their roles in the blast.

The two suspects have been indicted on 10 charges, including murder, but not terrorism.

A lawyer for one of the men told the Reuters news agency that the charges included premeditated murder, illegal possession of weapons, and murder.
