Another Explosive Device Launched At Police

Riot police facing anti-government protesters behind barrier line at Makawan Bridge, 22 November 2013

(23 November) An unknown assailant has launched a small explosive device at the police line near anti-government protests in Bangkok.


The incident took place at approximately 03.00 this morning, when a van headed from Nakorn Sawan Road pulled up near police checkpoint near Orathai Bridge. An individual later launched the explosive at the police officers before speeding away.
No police officer has been injured by the blast. The van managed to elude police chase near Makawan Bridge, where hundreds of anti-government protesters have been facing lines of riot police in full gears.
The attack followed a similar incident earlier this week when a homemade explosive device was thrown at the riot police who manned the barrier line around Makawan Bridge, injuring three officers. The police believe hardline members of the protesters threw the device, although no arrest has yet been made.
