Girl killed, dozens hurt in attack on Thai protest

BANGKOK, Thailand – Officials and medical workers in Thailand say an 8-year-old girl has died and dozens of others have been wounded when gunmen attacked an anti-government protest in the country’s east.

The attack in Trat province, about 180 miles east of Bangkok on Saturday evening is the latest in a string of protest-related violence over the past three months. Protesters want Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to resign to make way for an appointed interim government to implement anti-corruption reforms, but she has refused.

Police Lt. Thanabhum Newanit says unidentified assailants in a pickup truck shot into the crowd and two explosive devices went off. It was not clear if the protesters, who often use armed guards, fought back.

National Security Council chief Lt. Gen. Paradorn Pattanathuabutr confirmed the girl’s death.
