Suthep: 'Makkhawan arms not ours'

- +

Anti-government protest leader Suthep Thuagsuban has insisted that the weapons police seized from the Makkhawan Rangsan Bridge rally site did not belong to People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) supporters. 

Chalerm Yubamrung, director of the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO), made the claim on Friday as police began efforts to reclaim some rally sites.

Mr Chalerm claimed that police found ping-pong bombs, knives, slingshots, explosive devices and drugs at the protest base on Ratchadamnoen Nok Avenue after they successfully reclaimed the area that protesters had occupied since early November.
