Al-Qaeda terrorist 'has left Thailand'

- +

Only one member of an al-Qaeda terrorist group entered Thailand as part of the plot to attack a US consulate and he has already fled to Malaysia, a Thai security source said on Wednesday. 

The source said special branch police in Malaysia were preparing to apprehend the suspect, who has earlier been followed by Thai security officials.

The source said the United States consulate in Chiang Mai only wanted Thailand to beef up security for the US embassy in Bangkok, while the consulate itself had not taken any special security measures.
