Anti-government protester killed in Thailand
An anti-government protester has been killed and three others injured in a gun attack in Thailand.
Officials say the incident happened after an unidentified gunman opened fire at a rally site near government headquarters in the capital Bangkok. It’s still not yet clear who was behind the attack.
Army chief Prayuth Chan-ocha has called on both police and anti-government protesters to show restraint.
Two people, including a police officer, were shot dead on Thursday when protesters tried to overrun a Bangkok sports stadium.
Rallies have spread across the Asian nation, with demonstrators accusing Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra of being a puppet in the hands of her ousted powerful brother, Thaksin Shinawatra.
The anti-government campaign began last month when Bangkok tried to pass an amnesty law that could parole politically-related crimes. It could also pave the way for the return of deposed premier Thaksin.
