Multiple clashes between anti-government protesters and police in front of the 1st Infantry Regiment headquarters left people injured on both sides with many sent to hospitals.

Some protesters were arrested before charges were filed against them.

Metropolitan Police Bureau (MPB) deputy commissioner Piya Tawichai said that 22 protesters were detained at the Border Patrol Police Division 1. They will face at least three charges --- violating the Emergency Decree, Disease Control Act, and breaking property. Police will consider them on a case by case and an announcement will be made on Monday, he said.
