TV reporters assaulted by protesters

- +

Protesters condemned and assaulted a female reporter from Channel 9 television, and attempted to hurt another female reporter from Channel 3 because they were not satisfied with their live reports on Sunday afternoon. 

Protesters threw water into the face of Penphan Leamluang, a reporter from Mcot Group, which operates Channel 9, hit her left arm and pulled her in an attempt to bar her team to bring out a vehicle parked in front of Government Lottery Office building on Ratchadamnoen Avenue. The office is close to the Democracy Monument, where the main anti-government protest site led by the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) is set up.

The protesters were angry as they thought that Ms Penphan reported the number of protesters in her report but actually she did not give any figures.
