A patient suffering from a heart attack died as the ambulance he was in was delayed by traffic congestion at a red shirt rally against a yellow shirt-sponsored seminar in Ubon Ratchathani on Sunday, reports said.
About 300 supporters of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) gathered in front of Sunee Grand Hotel in Muang district which was hosting a political seminar held by the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD). The event was held to criticise the administration of the Pheu Thai-led government.
The group led by Chamroonsak Chantaramai used loud speakers to disrupt the seminar and deliver verbal attacks on PAD co-leaders including Maj-Gen Chamlong Srimuang. They also criticised the hotel management for allowing the yellow shirts to organise the event, which they said was an insult to the red shirts in the province.
