Thousands of pro-democracy protesters gathered in Thailand at Bangkok to demonstrate against the monarchy and military dictatorship in the country. Students had previously called for the protest since the last demonstration on the 18th of November, which ended in clashes between royalists and democrats.
Demonstrators then moved to the Ratchayothin intersection near SCB after gathering in central Bangkok, where they later shined their phones en masse to express solidarity with political prisoners in Thailand.
As the protest was called to a halt and demonstrators went home, a man was seen throwing a bomb-like object at protesters, and fired multiple shots, hitting at least 3 people but killing none. The perpetrator was arrested at the scene, according to eyewitnesses.
