Death toll climbs in Bangkok as Thai PM warns of civil war

“At least eight people have been killed as Thai security forces declared a ‘live firing zone’ in downtown Bangkok on Saturday following days of deadly clashes with anti-government protesters.

Saturday’s fatality takes the total number of deaths to 25 since a government-backed clampdown on protesters exploded into violence on Thursday. More than 150 people have been wounded, according to emergency officials.

In a televised address, Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said a small group of protesters among the opposition ‘Red Shirts’ was trying to foment civil war.”
