The suspect, later identified by cops as Niwat Chankaew, allegedly tracked his ex-lover’s truck to a petrol station and erupted in rage on seeing she was with another man.

Niwat is then said to have returned with his home-made bomb and hurled it at the truck while his ex and another man were sleeping.

The terrifying footage shows flames quickly engulfing the truck as a man in a red shirt is seen fleeing the scene.

The woman Pattarapond Kongsidee, 26, scrambled to safety with only minor burns along with her new man.

She told police they stopped over at the gas station to rest while travelling to deliver fruit with her new boyfriend when the incident happened.

She said: “He was my ex-husband. We have one child together but I had to leave him after I found out he was dealing drugs.

“I was shocked. I tried to maintain a good relationship with him and I thought we had an understanding. Now I am confused what made him do it.

“I thought we were going to die. He smashed the window which sent glass everywhere and made it even harder to escape and put out the fire.

“We covered the 170,000 baht (£3,900) repair bill by ourselves. We also lost the watermelons we were supposed to deliver which cost us another 50,000 baht (£1,150).”

She added that they reported the incident to the police, who later arrested Niwat and made him take part in a re-enactment of the attack in Nakhon Si Thammarat province.

He reportedly confessed to setting his ex-lover’s car alight be cause he was devastated over the split and said that she owed him money.

Niwat told local media he was not hiding from the police and was waiting for them to arrest him.

He said: “My heart was still broken. I told her not to come to Nakhon Si Thammarat until I get better.

“She took everything from me and now she’s giving it to the other person.

“I have not been hiding from the police. They just didn’t arrest me.

“I’m ready to be imprisoned but she has to pay me what she owes me so we can be fair.’

Police Captain Rakkiat Chotsak said that officers are still working on the case.

He said: “We interviewed and interrogated all witnesses and the evidence was already collected.

“We initially invited the man who was allegedly on the video for questioning but he did not show up.

“An arrest warrant was issued and we found him and he confessed to starting the fire.

“We’re not gathering his testimony and interviewing all the witnesses to know the full situation before he can be charged.”

Bye-bye, Dubai: Tennis great Roger Federer cancels tour plans again after blowing match point to lose to world no.42 at Qatar Open

Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer has withdrawn from a tournament after seeing his comeback event end prematurely at the Qatar Open, squandering a set lead and a match point to lose against Georgia’s Nikoloz Basilashvili.

Taking part in his first tournament in 14 months, the 39-year-old lost his quarter-final match to the world number 42 6-3, 1-6, 5-7 in one hour and 50 minutes.

Basilashvili turned out to be a resiliently tough opponent for Federer, saving seven out of 10 break points, including a match point at 4-5 in the decisive set.

Federer’s unexpected loss was not the only upset for his devoted fans, as the two-time Grand Slam winner swiftly announced his withdrawal from next week’s ATP 500 event in Dubai.

It’s been great to be back on the ATP Tour,” the beloved veteran wrote on Twitter. “I loved every minute playing in Doha once again.

A big thank you to the best and loyal team that helped me get here. I’ve decided it’s best to go back to training and, as a result, I’ve decided to withdraw from Dubai next week.”

Elsewhere in Doha, Russian stars Andrey Rublev and Aslan Karatsev reached the doubles final by beating Frenchmen Jeremy Chardy and Fabrice Martin.

The in-form duo recovered from 4-1 down in the second set and saved two set points at 5-4 to clinch a 7-6, 7-6 victory.

They will face Marcus Daniell and Philipp Oswald in the final, who sent home top-seeded Colombians Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah 6-3, 6-4 in their semi-final match.
