Pruek Prueksunan, better known among the red shirts as "Yim Tasawang", on Thursday denied any fore-knowledge of Tuesday's expressway shooting at anti-government protesters that killed a security guard. 

Mr Pruek said he was not aware that protesters were to be targeted by unknown gunmen who fired bullets at a convoy of the Network of Students and People for Reform of Thailand (NSPRT) on the expressway in Nonthaburi.

Sgt Wasant Khamwong, a security guard for the network, was killed and four other protesters were injured.
