BANGKOK, February 23. /ITAR-TASS/. An armed assault on civilians has been committed in the eastern part of Thailand, which is struck by mass protests in support resignation of the provisional government led by Yingluck Shinawatra. An 8-year-old girl has been killed and dozens of people were injured, according to The Bangkok Post newspaper.
The report says the attack has been carried out in some 300 km to the east from the country’s capital. At least 15 attackers opened gunfire at two houses, and set one of them, as well as two cars and a motorbike, on fire, the newspaper specifies.
In the morning, police officers found at least 20 bullet holes on the buildings’ walls.
According to the police, the attackers fled the crime scene. They threw about the road sharp metallic pins in order to disrupt the chase.
