(7 February) A pro-government radio station in Pathum Thani province was attacked with unidentified explosive device last night.
The incident took place at FM106.65 Radio headquarters in Lamlukka district, which is owned by a famous Redshirt leader, Mr. Wuttipong ′Ko Tee′ Kochthammakul.
The explosion damaged an air-condition compressor and left several marks on the building’s walls.
A security guard who was patrolling the scene also suffered minor injuries from the incident. Mr. Wutthipong said he was not at the station at the time.
Pol Col Naradetch Thipyarak, Chief of Kukhot Police Station, stated that the police is still unable to identify the type of the explosive, and is investigating the scene, but Mr. Wuttipong suggested that it might have been a grenade.
The Redshirt coordinator claimed he was aware of attempts to intimidate him after he appeared in much media coverage as a Redshirt leader in recent weeks.
Mr. Wuttiphong, who leads a local group of the United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) in Pathumthani province, has also recently drawn criticism from Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Thai Army by accusing the army of supporting the anti-government protests.
