Fears of violence in Thailand after barracks attack


After three days of peaceful demonstrations in Thailand, fears of violence have resurfaced after a attack at a military base.

Three grenades were launched over the fence and exploded at an army base in central Bangkok, wounding two soldiers.

It is not clear if the attack is linked to the protests by ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s red-shirted supporters.

Crowds of them have gathered outside another military base, used as a command centre by Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva.

The protestors want fresh elections to be held, believing that Thaksin will be reinstated.

A spokesman has said on Tuesday, blood will be drawn from each person and poured on the street outside Abhisit’s office as a symbolic gesture.
