6 killed by Thai soldiers during 2010 protests, says court
BANGKOK (AP) - A Thai court says soldiers killed six people at a Buddhist temple during the military crackdown on anti-government protesters in Thailand's capital three years ago.
The inquest said on Tuesday that six people, mostly protesters, were killed by high-velocity bullets from soldiers who were on the city's elevated train tracks and from the ground.
Mr Nattapat Akkahad, a brother of a slain volunteer nurse, said he was happy about the ruling and called for the army personnel responsible to be prosecuted.
The findings came at a time of renewed political tension, as protest groups gathered in Bangkok this week to oppose a controversial bill that would grant amnesty to political protesters.
