Thai anti-government protesters hijack bus

Thai protesters squatting in Bangkok’s main government compound hijacked a city bus late on Wednesday, a day after they clashed violently with police leaving two dead and hundreds injured.
Police said a group of supporters of the People’s Alliance for Democracy, which seeks the overthrow of the elected government, posed as passengers on the bus service that passes near their protest site.
In a police statement the authorities said around 10 PAD members boarded the bus and ordered everyone on board to leave before driving it to their camp at Government House.
The bus was used to blockade the front of the Government House building which protesters have besieged since August 26.
