Grenade fired at house of Suthep's wife

ANOTHER M79 grenade was fired on Saturday night at the house of the wife of Suthep Thaugsuban, secretary general of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC).

Srisakul Promphan posted a message on Facebook to say it was the second bomb attack on her Phutthamonthon home. She said the grenade on Saturday landed on the lawn near the dining room.

"I was at home when the grenade landed," she said.

"I don’t know how many more grenades will be fired to satisfy them.

"But we will fight on. Although they want to take our lives, the kamnan [Suthep] will fight with his life."

Her son, PDRC spokesman Akanat Promphan, posted a message on Facebook to say no one was injured in the attack at 7.10pm.

On March 11, two grenades were fired from an |M79 launcher close to Srisakul's house but failed to explode.

Meanwhile, Suthep held a training session yesterday with more than 2,300 guards at the Lumpini rally site.

He instructed the guards to stay disciplined and obey their supervisors.

He told them that the PDRC's fight against the Pheu Thai-led government would become more intense and that PDRC would soon win the fight.
