The Criminal Court in Bangkok is due to deliver its judgement on Thursday on two Iranian men accused of a botched bomb plot that officials believe was aimed at Israeli diplomats in the Thai capital.
The men were detained shortly after a cache of homemade explosives accidentally blew apart the Bangkok villa where the men were staying in February 2012.
Israel says the men were readying for an Iranian-backed attack on Israeli interests. Iran has denied the allegations and both men have proclaimed their innocence, saying they had been unaware of the explosives in their home.
