Two people were injured in an explosion on Rama IV Road in Bangkok, near Samyan Mitrtown complex, the site of a gathering of pro-democracy protesters on Saturday evening.

 

On Saturday, the protesters started gathering in front of the complex from late afternoon, demanding the release of two leaders of a group who had been arrested at the Victory Monument in the afternoon.

 

The sound of bomb occurred at around 6pm, and two persons were injured -- a citizen and a reporter.

 

The demonstrators left the scene after the incident, while Samyan Mitrtown closed early at around 6.40pm.
