One more kid killed tonight at BigC, according to switzerland news journalist based in Bangkok. 2 innocent kids killed since yesterday (including Trat's carnage), 1 kid still in critical condition. Is that not enough now Mr. Suthep and Mrs. Yingluck ?? You are destroying your own country and innocent citizens... Please, it's time to WAKE UP !! Shame on you !

Time to arm the soldiers and put them on guard to protect the protestors from being murdered by their own government.

Is this how the UDD is going to "deal with" with Suthep and the PDRC? Strange how this incident happens shortly after the "war drums" are sounded at the UDD meeting. Whomever is responsible for these atrocious acts of terrorism deserves the worst possible fate. From the killing of the child yesterday to the injuring of the three children today it is evident these attacks are aimed solely at instilling fear in the hearts of the people supporting change in the government. The PTP wants these elections held post haste so they can say they are the "democratically elected" government of Thaialnd and get on with their pillaging of the country!

Pheu Thai seems to be getting worried. This violence will only harm their cause.
