(VOVworld) – Thai police fired tear gas on Thursday morning to prevent opposing protesters from disrupting preparations for the coming election at Thai-Japanese stadium in Bangkok.
Hundreds of demonstrators were disbursed when they tried to enter buildings in Dindaeng, where 30 political parties attended the drawing of the party numbers for the February election.
Outside the stadium, police fired rubber bullets to prevent protestors from breaking down a fence. The security officials said 10,000 police were mobilized to the scene to maintain security.
