Estimated read time 1 min read

BANGKOK, Feb 28 (TNA) — Leaders of the anti-government Red Shirt movement, the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), said Sunday the group has no connection with the bomb incidents in the Thai capital and its neighbouring province of Samut Prakan on Saturday.

They asked the government to probe both the military and police as the explosives used in the incidents were ordinarily only possessed by the armed forces and police.

Key UDD leader Natthawut Saikuea insisted that his group would continue its struggle against the government in a peaceful way, denouncing the bombers for creating unrest and deteriorating the overall situation in the country.

Mr Natthawut said the incidents–in which no injuries were reported–would benefit the government as it could invoke the Internal Security Act by ordering the armed forces to control a major rally to be held by the UDD on March 14.
