Photos: Anti-Coup Protest at Victory Monument

BANGKOK — Several thousand Thais rallied around Bangkok’s Victory Monument yesterday in the growing protest movement against the military coup d’etat staged last Thursday.

There was a noticeably light presence of military and police personnel, who were greatly outnumbered by demonstrators. The rally was one of several staged throughout the country on Sunday and was largely peaceful, save for a brief confrontation between soldiers and protesters underneath the Victory Monument BTS station that ended with both sides retreating.

Here are Khaosod English reporter Sally Mairs's photos from the scene:
