Thai red shirts protest in second province

BANGKOK, April 10 (BestGrowthStock) – About 600 Thai “red shirt”
protesters broke into a local government office in the
northeast city of Udon Thani, angry at a crackdown on their
movement in the capital, local television said.

Earlier, hundreds of red shirts forced their way into the
governor’s office compound in the northern city of Chiang Mai.

In Udon Thani, the protesters broke through the gates, cut
barbed wire, removed barricades and entered the compound of the
town hall, local television said.

The red shirts had vowed that they would besiege governors’
offices in the provinces if there was a crackdown on their
one-month-old protest in the capital for fresh elections.

Thai troops fired rubber bullets at protesters in Bangkok
as they moved in to clear one protest site in the biggest
confrontation in the campaign.
