Thai troops fire on "red shirt" protesters near U.N.

BANGKOK, April 10 (BestGrowthStock) – Thai troops fired directly at
“red shirt” protesters at a bridge next to the regional U.N.
headquarters, wounding at least one in the arm, a Reuters
photographer said.

The army has been told to “reclaim” a protest site at the
nearby Phan Fah bridge in old Bangkok. There were about 4,000
protesters left in the area and the troops had about 200 metres
to clear before they get to the main stage, an army spokesman
said.

Hundreds of troops also massed at a downtown protest site,
apparently ready to move in, and the crowd was growing by the
hour.
