BANGKOK, Jan. 18 (PNA/PTI) — Defiant Thai protesters on Saturday marched through the capital vowing to continue their campaign to oust beleaguered premier Yingluck Shinawatra, blaming the government for a blast at a rally that killed one person and wounded dozens.

Tensions escalated Friday following the grenade attack at the rally led by opposition leader Suthep Thaugsuban as protesters stepped up their months-long agitation, blocking major roads in Bangkok and occupying ministries. (PNA/PTI)
