A group of protesters in Bangkok, Thailand, has been arrested for allegedly attacking police officers and breaking into the capital’s main Thai newspaper.
Police on Saturday said the group had set fire to a newspaper advertisement on a central Bangkok street.
Thai Prime Minister Aung San Suu Kyi’s ruling party, led by her brother-in-law, Thaksin Shinawatra, said the demonstrators were part of an anti-government uprising against the government.
Thaksin has been in custody since early December, when he was arrested and charged with embezzlement, and released in early January after his release was approved by the country’s Supreme Court.
The arrests of protesters were announced by police, who said they were searching for a fourth man who was seen entering the newspaper.
They also arrested a man in the street, who they identified as a member of the protest group.
Thailand’s Prime Minister has been a frequent target of demonstrations and attacks by protesters, with hundreds of people arrested in the past year.
The protests in Bangkok were the latest in a series of demonstrations in recent years over alleged corruption.
The government has blamed the protests on a plot by foreign powers and some foreign nationals who are trying to undermine the rule of law.
The protesters have also been targeting senior military officials.
