Two foreign terrorist suspects were arrested by Thai police on Monday, PM's adviser on security matters Paradorn Pattanatabut confirmed on Thursday. 

The two men were suspected of coming to Thailand to carry out attacks on Israeli tourists during the Jewish Passover, which coincided with the Songkran festival. Thailand is a popular destination for Israeli travellers.

"We have arrested two out of three suspects," Lt Gen Paradorn said. The two were identified as Lebanese-French national Daoud Farhat and Lebanese-Philippine national Youssef Ayad.
