28 more hurt in Thai unrest
TWENTY-EIGHT people were wounded, seven seriously, in explosions yesterday at a camp of anti-government protesters in Bangkok, the latest violence in a prolonged political crisis dividing the country and threatening the Thai economy.
The explosions came a day after the military urged both sides to settle their differences in the dispute spanning over two months, in which protesters are trying to bring down the elected government of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.
On Friday night, one man was killed and 35 other protesters were wounded in a grenade explosion in the capital.
A video clip has since surfaced, purportedly showing a grenade being thrown from a pickup truck belonging to a protester.
Mr Satit Wongnongtaey, a senior Democrat Party member and leader of the People's Democratic Reform Committee, denied that the party staged the attack on its own protesters.
