More Die as Protests Continue in Thailand

Ad Feedback

Eight people have died and more than 100 others have been injured in escalating protests in the streets of Bangkok, Thailand, Friday.

Thai troops fired tear gas, rubber bullets, and eventually live rounds to subdue protesters who were armed with homemade rockets and slingshots.

U.S. and British embassies have closed in the area.

The "Red Shirts" -- mostly rural poor -- are trying to bring down the Thai government and force out Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva. They claim Vejjajiva was unfairly elected by manipulating the courts.

At least 37 people have been killed since the demonstrations began March 12.
