BUTTERWORTH: Seven Malaysian victims involved in the Bangkok bomb blast are from the same family.

The family has been informed that four of the seven have died.

Businessman Visen Lim Gim Seong, 46, a close friend of the family, said they were supposed to return on Tuesday.

He said he has known the family for over 10 years ago as they were neighbours.

“They left for Bangkok last Saturday by train and was supposed to return this morning,” said Lim, shedding tears as he spoke to reporters outside the family’s home in Taman Dedap here.

Lim added that it was not uncommon for the family to travel together as they had done so many times in the past.

The other remaining family members were too distraught and refused to speak to reporters.
