An AFP report on the Sydney Morning Herald site confirms that an Italian photographer was among those shot dead in the clash between protesters and military forces in Thailand.
“An Italian man was shot and died before arriving at the hospital,” said police hospital director Jongjet Aoajenpong. “He’s a journalist. He was shot in the stomach,” he added.
“Thai protest leaders have surrendered after an army assault on their fortified encampment in central Bangkok left at least five people dead on Wednesday,” the AFP reported.
