Thousands of troops, protesters play cat and mouse in Bangkok

Thai soldiers seal off an elevated train station leading to a shopping mall and broke up an anti-coup protest in Bangkok on June 1, 2014Thousands of security personnel, backed by armoured vehicles, were deployed on Bangkok’s streets Sunday in a show of force against small but defiant anti-coup flashmob rallies. One group of peaceful protesters evaded soldiers, police and roadblocks to stage a demonstration in the city’s commercial centre in what has become a now daily dance with authorities. Police said they had arrested “some” of the protesters who had gathered at a walkway linked to a major shopping centre. Political assemblies of more than five people were banned under martial law declared by Army Chief Prayut Chan-O-Cha two days before he seized power in a coup on May 22.
