Another Bangkok protest camp attacked
(02-25 18:25)

Another anti-government protest site in Thailand's capital was attacked today following a weekend of violence that left four people dead, including three children, security officials said.
Deputy National Police spokesman Anucha Romyanan said the attack occurred early today at a protest camp near Lumpini Park in downtown Bangkok. He said shots were fired from a car and a motorcycle at protest site guards there and at another protest site near the upscale Ratchaprasong shopping area.
On Sunday, a grenade attack at Ratchaprasong killed a 6-year-old girl and her 4-year-old brother. A 5-year-old girl died Saturday in another attack on a rally site in the eastern province of Trat.
At least 20 people have been killed and more than 700 have been hurt since November in violence related to protests demanding that Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra resign.—AP
