Thailand protests: Toll rises as six found dead in temple refuge

http://news-updations.blogspot.comWith an uneasy peace holding in Bangkok , the death toll from the violent army crackdown has reached 14 today when the bodies of six protesters were found inside the temple designated as a refuge for women and children.

The military declared that it had retaken control in central Bangkok but a city-wide curfew was extended for another three days. The government declared a state of emergency across 23 provinces, mainly in the north of the country, which is an anti-government redshirt stronghold.

The discovery of the bodies took to 82 the total number of deaths during two months of clashes between government troops and protesters.

The redshirts' fortified protest camp in central Bangkok was stormed by troops early on Wednesday. Demonstrators had occupied some 300 hectares (740 acres) of the capital for more than a month.
