BANGKOK, May 10 (TNA) – The anti-government ‘Red Shirt’ United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) leadership announced Monday evening that their rally in Bangkok’s prime business district of Ratchaprasong will end after Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban turns himself in to the police to acknowledge charges over the deadly April 10 crackdown.

UDD leader Natthawut Saikua told the Red Shirt supporters from the stage at their rally site that if Mr Suthep surrenders to the police to hear his charges, the rally will end on the same day, and the protesters will return to their homes.

The UDD earlier said Mr Suthep, who heads the Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES), should take responsibility for the April 10 crackdown, which resulted in 25 persons dead and some 800 injured in fierce street clashes between security forces and protesters.
