10 injured in Bangkok bomb at protest march
(01-17 14:58)

Ten people were hurt in a bomb blast at an opposition protest march in the Thai capital Bangkok today.
The protest movement's own Bluesky television channel reported the injury count.
“The bomb went off shortly after 1 pm [local time],’’ deputy national police spokesman Anucha Romyanan said.
Television footage showed several people lying on the ground as ambulances rushed away the wounded. Protesters were seen searching nearby buildings for the attackers.
Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has faced more than two months of street demonstrations aimed at forcing her elected government from office and installing an appointed body to oversee loosely defined reforms such as an end to alleged vote buying.
Eight people have been killed and hundreds injured in street violence since the protests began.
“Yingluck must take responsibility,'' one of the protest leaders, Satit Wonghnongtaey, said on stage soon after the blast.—AFP
