- +

The hand grenade that went off on Banthat Thong road on Friday in the column of marching protesters of the People's Democratic Reform Committee led by Suthep Thaugsuban, was not thrown from any high building in that area but was the work of at least two men who mingled among the demonstrators, the Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (Capo) said Sunday.

The announcement was made by Deputy Prime Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul, who is in charge of Capo, and referred to the attack that left at least 36 people wounded. One one of them, Prakong Chuchan, 46, a resident of Nakhon Si Thammarat, died on Saturday morning.
