PDRC guards detain armed police

Security guards for Luang Pu Buddha Isara, a senior monk and anti-government protest leader, detained three plainclothed police officers who allegedly fired shots at the rally site at Chaeng Wattana on Tuesday.

Reports said three men fired two shots at the guards of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) on Chaeng Wattana Road on Tuesday afternoon.

The guards later detained the three men, who were carrying pistols and police documents.

The officers told Luang Pu that they were assigned to gather intelligence on the protest group. The monk then called their superior to take them back to the police station and told them not to bring  weapons into the rally site again, according to the reports.

Police are not supposed to be armed if mingling with the protesters.
