Petrol bomb thrown at red rally

CHIANG MAI ― Two men lobbed a petrol bomb at the site of a red-shirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) rally in Chiang Mai's Muang district late Tuesday night.

Chiang Mai police chief Pol Maj Gen Krich Kittilue said on Wednesday that a red-shirt leader filed a complaint with Muang police station at 9.45pm Tuesday saying that two men on a motorcycle tossed a Molotov cocktail at his group’s rally site near Chang Puak Gate on Manee Nopparat Road and then sped away, Thai Rath online reported. 

The complainant claimed the attackers targeted the rally stage but missed. The petrol bomb hit the old city wall and burst into flames, but no one was injured. 

Investigators were examining security camera footage, hoping to identify the suspects, Pol Maj Gen Krich said.
