Bangkok bombing: Two Uighur suspects appear in a civilian court

Bangkok bombing: two uighur suspects appear in a civilian court

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Bangkok bombing: Two Uighur suspects appear in a civilian court” – below is their description.

The trial of two Chinese men accused of bombing a popular shrine in Bangkok has resumed after shifting from a military to a civilian court.

The two ethnic Uighur suspects have been jailed without trial since 2015.

Difficulties finding translators delayed proceedings and then COVID-19 shut it down completely.

Now, seven years on, survivors and families of the victims of Thailand’s worst bombing are still waiting for answers.
