The son of ousted Thai premier Thaksin Shinawatra has more than doubled the reward offered by police for the capture of those behind this week's deadly Bangkok bomb blast by putting up nearly 200,000 US dollars.

Monday's attack on a religious shrine in a bustling Bangkok shopping district killed 20 people, mostly ethnic Chinese tourists from across Asia, leaving police scrambling to find the assailants and sending shock waves through the nation's vital tourism sector.

Police are convinced the attack was planned and coordinated by a network.

With no arrests and few clues on the identity of the main suspect in a yellow T-shirt seen leaving a backpack at the shrine, moments before the fatal blast, police have offered a three million baht which is an 84,000 dollar reward for any information that leads to the capture of the assailant.
