Two dead, 45 wounded in Thai political violence

BANGKOK (AFP) - Two people have been killed and 45 wounded during political violence in the Thai capital, emergency services said on Sunday, as the opposition vowed a final push to overthrow the government.

"The confirmed toll is now two dead and 45 injured," an official at the city's Erawan emergency centre said.

The circumstances were unclear but the violence broke out after a confrontation late Saturday between opposition protesters and government supporters staging their own rally at a Bangkok stadium in support of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.
