HATYAI: The Thai government is donating Baht459,000 (about RM45,900) to the next-of-kin of Malaysians killed in last Saturday’s bomb blast at Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel here.
Datuk Latt Shariman Abdullah, who is special functions officer to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, said of the total amount, Baht150,000 was provided by the Songkhla Governor’s Office and the remaining, from Thailand’s Ministry of Tourism.
Latt Shariman said this to reporters after he visited the four Malaysians, who were injured in the bombing, still warded at Songkhla Nagarind Hospital here.
The bombing, believed carried out by insurgents, has so far claimed the lives of two Malaysians.
One of them was Low Thian Hock from Kubang Ulu in Bukit Mertajam, Penang.
The second Malaysian was Tan Peng Chan, 39, whose charred remains were today identified by his father, Pee Hong, a 63-year-old coffee shop owner from Kuala Kedah, Kedah.
