According to media sources, incidents erupted in the capital today on the fringes of demonstrations staged on the occasion of parliamentary debates on constitutional amendments, notably those demanded by the pro-democracy militants.
The police deployed tear gas and water cannons in order to disperse the protesters when they were marching towards parliament. At least a dozen people were reportedly injured.
Incidents were also reported between demonstrators and ultra-royalist groups at Kiakkai intersection.
Renewed political demonstrations should be expected given that parliament is set to continue its debates 18 November. Please keep away from the area around parliament, as well as traditional rallying places such as Democracy Monument and the adjacent Ratchadamnoen Avenue.
Security reinforcements should be expected. Renewed incidents should not be ruled out.
