ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION PLEASE NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL THAT WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 Thai Public Broadcaster Service (TPBS), a local television channel was attacked on Wednesday (February 26) but no injuries were reported, police said. Closed circuit television appeared to have captured an explosion in the parking lot of TPBS on Wednesday night. The television broadcaster reported that three cars were damaged in the blast but said there were no casualties. Thai media reported that two grenades were found at TPBS and another was found at the Bangkok Police Club, not far from the public service television broadcaster. The Police Club was used by the government as the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order (CMPO). On Thursday (February 27) Thailand's anti-corruption agency was due to bring charges of negligence against Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, as anti-government protesters demand that she resign in a stand-off marred by violence that shows no sign of coming to an end. Yingluck was a no-show at the anti-corruption agency hearing, sending her legal team instead. Intermittent bursts of gunfire and grenade blasts have become routine at night in a conflict that has taken a heavy toll on tourism in the capital. The protesters, whose disruption of a general election this month has left Thailand in paralysis, want to topple Yingluck and erase the influence of her brother, ousted premier Thaksin Shinawatra, seen by many as the real power in the country. They want to set up a "people's council" of unspecified good and worthy people to spearhead political reform before new elections are held and have blocked key intersections in Bangkok for weeks to press their case. The protests have been marked by occasional small bomb blasts and gunfire in which 21 people have been killed and more than 700 wounded since the crisis began in November. The crisis pits the mainly middle-class and southern anti-government demonstrators, who are backed by the royalist establishment, against the largely rural supporters of Yingluck and Thaksin in the north and northeast. Both sides have armed activists and some pro-government leaders have called for Thailand to be divided in two, along north-south political lines, prompting talk of a possible civil war.
