Nighttime attack on Thai antigovernment protesters wounds at least 20(Read article summary)
The government denied attacking demonstrators, who have called for the ouster of the prime minister.
One person has been killed and 23 others wounded in a grenade attack Thursday against antigovernment protesters occupying the Thai prime minister's offices in Bangkok. The attack marks an escalation in violence after a six-day lull and may herald an aggressive push to dislodge members of the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD), who seized Government House in August.
According to Agence France-Presse (AFP), the attack occurred just hours after the cremation ceremonies of Princess Galyani – the late sister of King Bhumibol Adulyadej – ended. There had been a respite in violence during the princess' six-day funeral.
