Red rally in Udon Thani: bomb hoax near Trairong's home

About 200 red shirts on Thursday held a brief rally in Udon Thanai to read out a statement demanding democracy before volunatrily dispersing.

The rally, taken place at a main intersection in town, was a first political gathering since the lifting of emergeny rule in the northeastern province last week.

In Bangkok, Prachachuen police received a tip-off about a possible grenade in a bush near the branch office of the Metropolitan Electricity Authority, located 100 meters from the home of Deputy Prime Minister Trairong Suwankhiri.

The bomb squad was dispatched to the scene and found the grenade to be a fake. Police suspect it was meant to stir up a scare.
