In the wake of the discovery of more than 2,000 of foetuses at a Bangkok temple, police and foodanddrug agents yesterday seized a large number of abortion pills worth about Bt20 million (S$872,415) in a raid on a shophouse on the outskirts of Bangkok.

The raid turned up 100,000 mifepristone (MT) and other pills and police arrested a man found to have been only guarding the premises in Bang Khae district.

Raids were conducted at another three locations in Bangkok but found nothing illegal.

Public Health Minister Jurin Laksanawisit said raids were planned for another five locations in Bangkok and nearby provinces to search for abortion pills or any products including unauthorised diet pills, cosmetics and medication for pimples.

There are three to five illegal abortion clinics yet to be raided, he added, without elaborating.
