A Bangkok Court has approved two more arrest warrants for a Thai woman and a foreign man suspected of being involved in a deadly bombing in Bangkok two weeks ago.

Around two weeks after the deadly bombing, Thai police say they're hunting for two more suspects.

On Monday, national police spokesman Prawuth Thavornsiri said they were certain the two were part of a group responsible for the Aug. 17 blast at the Erawan Shrine in central Bangkok that killed 20 people. More than half of the victims were foreigners.

The spokesman displayed a photograph of one of the two suspects, who's believed to be a Thai woman. 

He also showed a sketch of the other suspect, who's said to be a foreign man. But his exact nationality remains unclear for the moment. 

A Bangkok Court has approved arrest warrants for the two suspects. 

Police say they found bomb-making materials in a Bangkok apartment rented by the female suspect. The foreign suspect was seen living in the same apartment.

The developments came after police arrested a man in an apartment in Bangkok's outskirts on Saturday and seized bomb-making equipment.
