Thai premier’s national TV broadcast disrupted

Bangkok, April 25 (DPA) A televised broadcast of Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva was cut off for several minutes Sunday by suspected saboteurs, the prime minister said.

The broadcast of Abhisit and Army Commander-in-Chief General Anupong Paochinda was taped Saturday to explain the government’s stance on a protest movement that has seized the centre of Bangkok and led to 26 deaths.

Minutes into the show on the government-run National Broadcasting Television, the signal went dead for more than 10 minutes, leaving viewers in the dark, before the broadcast resumed.

“This morning there was tampering with the signal,” Abhisit said in a brief live announcement afterwards. “We are investigating who was responsible for the incident.”
