- +

An extra 117 military checkpoints will be set up to cover risk spots around anti-government rally sites and other key areas in Bangkok in the wake of escalating protest-related violence. 

Maj Gen Wara Boonyasit, commander of the 1st Division, King's Guard, announced the plan on Wednesday during a meeting with senior military officers.

The meeting was called to discuss adjusting security measures after unidentified gunmen carried out a series of late-night gun and grenade attacks on People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) protest sites in Lumpini, Ratchaprasong and Pathumwan on Monday and Tuesday.
