Two men have been shot dead and 54 injured during clashes between anti-government protesters and red-shirt supporters that created mayhem as running battles scarred the streets of inner Bangkok. 

VICTIM OF PROTESTS: A man was seriously hurt after being attacked yesterday behind Ramkhamhaeng University in the Hua Mak area.

''A 21-year-old man was shot dead by two bullets to his left side,'' said Boonchuay Pochantong, an official at a police station near Ramkhamhaeng University where unrest broke out earlier. He was identified as university student Taweesak Phokaew, 21, who was shot in the right ribcase. The other man was identified as Wissanu Phaophu, 26, who was shot in the chest.
