Thai army to limit water, electricity to protests
from The Associated Press via Google News
The Thai government turned to siege tactics after fruitless efforts to compromise with demonstrators barricaded in central Bangkok, announcing that the army would limit supplies of water, food and electricity to the protest zone. Although army spokesman Col. Sansern Kaewkamnerd said security forces would "not use force at this stage," sealing the area risks confrontation with the thousands of so-called Red Shirt protesters who have camped there for two months and could spark violence if they refuse to disperse. Some 29 people have died and 1,400 been injured in clashes so far.
