- +

One group of people is believed to have perpetrated both Friday and Sunday's grenade attacks on anti-government protesters, police said. 

The first attack hit as protesters with the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) leader Suthep Thaugsuban led demonstrators in a march along Banthat Thong Road on Friday. One person was killed and 39 wounded.

The second incident took place on Sunday afternoon at Victory Monument. Two hand grenades were thrown at demonstrators, and shots were fired from a pistol as the suspect responsible for the attack fled the scene. The attack left 28 people wounded, four of them seriously.
