BANGKOK, April 22 (Reuters) - A series of grenade blasts that hit Bangkok’s business district on Thursday killed at least three people, Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban told reporters. t He also said the government had no plan to crack down on anti-government protesters in the area, because women and children are among them.
The five grenade blasts wounded 75 people, including four foreigners, in an area packed with heavily armed soldiers and studded with banks, office towers and hotels. (Reporting by Nopporn Wong-Anan; Editing by Bill Tarrant)
