A grenade attack on the car of a journalist working for the state run broadcasting system in Bangkok, Tuesday underlines that the civil unrest continues in Thailand.
In the latest of what is believed to be a grenade attack none was injured. Grenades targeted sites in Bangkok on August 27, July 30 and a week earlier in which one person was killed. A Red Shirt activist has admitted to owning a grenade but denied planting it.
The Red Shirt faction in Thailand has been active for quite some time, but more so since the ousting of the former Prime Minister and his replacement with the help of the military. The former prime minister is in self-imposed exile as he faces charges in Thailand. The current prime minister, Abhisit Vejjajiva, has continued the state of emergency imposed last May.
