Attackers hurts dozens at Thai anti-govt rally

Police in eastern Thailand say at least 35 people were hurt when an anti-government rally was attacked by armed men.


Police Lt. Thanabhum Newanit said assailants in a pick-up truck attacked a Saturday night rally held by the People's Democratic Reform Committee in the province of Trat, about 300 kilometers (180 miles) east of Bangkok. He said the attackers shot into the crowd and two explosive devices went off. It was not clear if the protest group, which uses armed guards, fought back. (AP)
