The Juvenile Court has acquitted two youths of carrying out an arson attack on CentralWorld and the Zen department store during the 2010 riots. 

Their lawyer, Chokechai Angkaew, said the court acquitted them for lack of evidence.

Prosecutors filed the case on Sept 7, 2010 against the young men, then aged 16 and 17, accusing them of setting fire to CentralWorld on May 19 of that year during the military crackdown on red-shirt protesters.
