BANGKOK — An attack on antigovernment protesters, most likely with a grenade, injured more than 30 people Friday in Bangkok, intensifying tensions in the city as a dwindling but dedicated core of protesters continues to block access to a number of government buildings and major intersections.
The explosion occurred in broad daylight in central Bangkok as the protesters marched down a narrow street, leaving people dazed and bleeding. It remained unclear hours after the attack who was responsible, with the protesters blaming the government but refusing to allow a forensics team to fully investigate the site because, they said, they do not trust the police.
“The use of a war weapon is of particular concern,” said Sunai Phasuk, a senior researcher in Thailand at Human Rights Watch. “Thailand cannot allow this cycle to spin into something more dangerous.”
