Blast wounds 36 anti-government protesters in Thai capital
By Amy Sawitta Lefevre BANGKOK (Reuters) - An explosive device tossed at anti-government protesters wounded 36 in central Bangkok on Friday and other violence rippled through the Thai capital after several days of relative calm when the movement appeared to be running out of steam. Police said the device was hurled at protesters marching with their leader, Suthep Thaugsuban, near Chulalongkorn University in the city centre. The overall injury toll came from the Erawan Medical Center, which monitors Bangkok hospitals. They accuse Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and her brother, former premier Thaksin Shinawatra, of corruption and say they want her to step down to make way for an unelected "people's council" to push through broad political reforms.
