Bangkok Police believe that a number of stickers bearing the word "Sejeal" found posted along a road in the city may have been used by the Iranian men arrested in a terror plot last week to mark potential targets, the Bangkok Post reported on Monday.

The stickers were found posted at 52 locations along a road which leads to the Israeli embassy in Bangkok and is frequented by Israeli officials. Similar stickers were found at the house where a blast occurred last week, believed to be a work accident which took place while the suspects were planning a terror attack. The stickers were also discovered at another house linked to the suspects and under the seat of a motorcycle believed to be the property of one of the suspects.

According to the report, the word written on the stickers, "sejeal," may refer to a passage in the Koran. Palestinians terrorists have referred to their rockets and mortar shells as "sejeal stones," referencing the Koran passage.

The Bangkok Post added that Thai police were planning to seek an arrest warrant for a sixth suspect believed to be involved in the terror plot. An official said that the suspect is believed to have left Thailand for Iran already.
