BANGKOK, December 27. /ITAR-TASS/. Bangkok’s administration has published on Friday updated data on the number of injured in street clashes on Thursday near the Thai-Japanese friendship stadium. According to the report, two people were killed and another 143 were injured.

Among the injured are 25 police officers, one of them died in hospital of a gun wound. All injured were brought to Bangkok hospitals, where they undergo medical treatment. Police fired tear gas and rubber bullets in the clashes. The demonstrators used fire arms and self-made firecrackers.

The situation near the Thai-Japanese friendship stadium, where today the election committee finishes accepting documents from those who want to participate in the parliamentary election, can be described as calm. The oppositionists left the territory that they had been occupying earlier in front of the residence of acting Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. They have been holding a rally for several days, trying to make as much as possible noise. Thus, they wanted to pressure the head of the cabinet, who, as they believe, should immediately resign.
