Village headmen, kamnans rally

A group of village headmen and sub-district chiefs (kamnans) from around the country demonstrated in front of the Ministry of Interior Sunday morning as part of a plan to retake the complex from anti-government protesters, reports said.

The village headmen and kamnans from provinces such as Phetchabun, Ang Thong, Lampang and Chon Buri, started gathering at about 7.30am. The minstry, on Atsadang Road, was occupied by members of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) and the State Enterprises Workers' Relations Confederation (SERC).

However, the protesters abandoned the compound on Saturday night after PDRC secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban told them to gather at the main rally site in Lumpini Park.

Police were deployed to oversee security at the Interior Ministry and told the village headmen and kamnans to gather outside the office building.
