BANGKOK May 8 Four policemen were wounded
after three explosions near a Bangkok business district early
on Saturday, police and hospital sources said.
Police officials told Reuters they suspected the loud
blasts, near Bangkok's heavily guarded Silom road area and
close to an encampment of anti-government protesters, may have
caused by grenades. Police were unable to give further details
and said an investigation was underway.
Just over an hour earlier, one policeman was killed another
wounded along with two civilians in a drive-by shooting in the
Silom area, about 50 metres from the front lines of an
encampment occupied for four weeks by "red shirt"
