The anti-government protests in Bangkok turned violent over the weekend. Protestors, who have occupied several government offices since Monday, tried to march to Government House (the Prime Minister's office). They were met by a phalanx of police officers and rows of razor wire and concrete barricades. Protestors would rush police positions, throwing rocks, paving stones and large firecrackers. Police responded by using tear gas and water cannons on the crowd.
