An M79 grenade was fired at the house of the wife of People's Democratic Reform Committee secretary general Suthep Thaugsuaban Saturday night, she said.

Srisakul Promphan, Suthep’s wife, posted a message on her Facebook wall that a M79 grenade was fired at her house and it landed in the lawn near the dining room.

“I was at home when the grenade landed. 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,” Srisakul posted.

Her son, PDRC spokesman Akanat Promphan, posted a message on his Facebook wall that no one was injured in the attack at 7:10 pm.

Srisakul’s house is located on Soi Buddhamonthon 2 in Bangkok’s Thawee Watana district.

Akanat said it was the second attack in a week. On March 10, two M79 grenades, which did not explode, were found near the house.

“It’s second attack in the week. But all in the family are safe and they are still in morale to fight on,” Akanat posted.

He later told reporters that he has not yet filed a complaint with police.
