Thai troops and anti government protesters clashed on Rama IV Road Friday afternoon in a series of running battles. Troops fired into the air and at protesters after protesters attacked the troops with rockets and small homemade explosives. Unlike similar confrontations in Bangkok, these protesters were not Red Shirts. Most of the protesters were residents of nearby Khlong Toei slum area, Bangkok's largest slum area. The running battle went on for at least two hours.
