Hundreds detained in anti government protests in Bangkok

Thousands gathered in the streets of Bangkok Wednesday, in opposition to the government as it comes under pressure from protesters.

A series of raids and arrests at protest sites are expected to continue, and further demonstrations are likely in coming weeks in an effort to further quell the public anger, analysts told Reuters.

The military's ruling Pheu Thai party took power at the beginning of November, but the government and opposition have been locked in a bitter row over the last few weeks over the country's finances, corruption and poverty.

With a population estimated at 1.3 billion, Thailand, traditionally one of the world's most stable democracies, is set for its first election since 2007.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha was appointed prime minister on November 8 and swiftly cemented his government as the most popular among the nation's two million people, according to recent survey data.

The Pheu Thai party won 48 percent of the vote to 46 percent in a run-off vote in May 2016, but the opposition has been demanding elections.

"We are not going back to the days of people being arrested and jailed," said Ranganath Phukharnariam, a 31-year-old taxi driver at the protest.

"We're not going back, we're doing our duty, and we're going to continue our activities."

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Wednesday's violence, which erupted outside a shopping centre in central Bangkok. A Reuters witness said several buildings were set on fire while hundreds of people in the square had their property damaged. Police were also present, and security measures were enforced.

The authorities were forced into action, seizing more than 700 computers and phone, video streaming and internet connection devices.


Internet, voice and phone services resumed in the capital as part of the government's response to the protest.
