Anti-government leader shot dead in Bang Na

 BANGKOK, Jan 26 -- Suthin Tharatin, a core leader of the People's Democratic Force to Overthrow Thaksinism (PEFOT), was shot dead with at least nine others injured in a clash with Red Shirt supporters near Sri Iam Temple in Bang Na district.

The clash occurred after Mr Suthin led a group of protesters to a polling station at Sri Iam Temple late Sunday morning to call on the director of the polling station to close down advance voting.

As the director agreed to cease the voting process, Mr Suthin and other protesters then prepared to leave the polling station.

PEFOT core leader was seen delivered a speech on a six-wheel truck shortly after they left the polling station, with a large group of Red Shirt supporters waiting for them outside.

The sound of a gunshot was heard coming from the direction of the Red Shirt group.

Suthin was shot and pronounced dead later at a hospital while the injured are now being hospitalised at nearby hospitals.

As of 3pm, Erawan Emergency Medical Service Centre reported that one person died and nine others were wounded in the deadly clash in Bang Na.

In a related development, People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) Akanat Promphan urged caretaker prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra and Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO) to take responsibility for the deadly clash as well as all other disturbances near other polling stations today.

He said that the PDRC and its allies rallied peacefully and were unarmed.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
