The prime minister ordered higher security at Makhawanrangsan Bridge while ordering a guard to be maintained to provide security at judges’ houses.

Mr.Somchai said that he was briefed by national police chief Pol. Gen. Patcharawat Wongsuwan about the two incidents. He instructed the police to speed up investigation to find those responsible bombers so that they might be punished.

The gathering of the red-shirted UDD demonstrators is planned as part of a ‘mobile political talk show “Kwam Jing Wan Nee” (The Truth Today) at Rajamangla Stadium when ousted prime minister Thaksin is expected to telephone his supporters.

The show is normally broadcast on the state-run NBT channel but Mr. Thaksin’s address will not air live on NBT but will be carried live on the Internet at http://www.todayfact.com., according to leading UDD member and People Power Party (PPP) MP Jatuporn Promphan. (TNA)
