Police are looking into whether Saturday morning's attack on the office of the Thai Rath newspaper is linked to the controversy surrounding its cartoonist's comments about the prime minister. 

Investigators said there could be a link but other motives were not being ruled out.

According to an initial investigation, four men on two motorcycles threw two iron petanque balls and firecrackers at the security booth in front of the head office of Thai Rath about 3.20am. Two security guards were slightly injured.
