    One killed, 7 wounded in another Bangkok blast

    8 injured in another bomb attack outside Government House
    By The Nation

    Eight protesters were injured, one severely, after two assailants launched a grenade at them at the Misakawan Intersection outside the Government House early Saturday.

    The attack was made at 2:10 am against a group of some 20 protesters who were standing and talking outside a gate of the Government House.

    Anupong Samerphak, 22, was hit by bomb shrapnel at his body and neck. Ramathibodi Hospital doctors had to put him on respiratory system.

    Eyewitnesses said two teenagers parked their motorcycle near the back gate of the Metropolitan Police head office and used a grenade launcher to launch a grenade at the protesters. The two fled the scene on Phitsanulok Road.

    The injured protesters were standing near the Fifth Gate of the Government House Complex opposite from the Education Ministry.

    The explosion caused a small hole in the ground and damaged two pick-up trucks, a sedan car and a motorcycle near the scene.

    Maj Gen Anan Srihiran, commander of the Metropolitan Police Division 1, rushed to the scene with bomb disposal officers to carry out an investigation.

    Pongchai Saetang, 42, a taxi driver, told police that he was waiting at the intersection for passengers when he saw a red light in the air, which was followed by a loud noise shortly.

    He said the explosion occurred at the spot where about 20 people were talking.

    The taxi driver said he saw two young men fleeing on their motorcycle on Phitsanulok heading to the Wang Daeng intersection.

    The two men were about 200 metres away from the explosion spot when they ran to their motorcycle and fled, the taxi driver said.

    The seven other injured were identified as Wirat Piangsajja, 54, Somchai Wongsonthi, 44, Pongchanok Kanchana-amorndej, 31, Samrerng Buachan, 26, Prakrong Hachai, 38, Narong Nakiam, 64 and Ekkapol Sahawat, 33.

    All of them were rushed to the Ramathibodi Hospital by the PAD guards.

    It was the second bomb attack after the tacit ceasefire during the royal cremation period.

    Early Thursday, a grenade was launched at protesters inside the Government House complex, killing one and injuring more than 20 others.

    The Thursday bomb prompted the PAD to declare war and plan a mass rally outside Parliament Sunday to try to speed up the downfall of the government.

    Two questions arising from this report:

    1) Where do "teenagers" get their hands on grenades and a grenade launcher?

    2) How come they manage to be so accurate first shot?

    Suggest these are army personnel in "civvies"
