A small explosion has injured six street cleaners at an anti-government protest site in Thailand’s capital.
It’s believed the cleaners disturbed an explosive device when they were clearing the site in central Bangkok on Monday.
Anti-government protests are continuing in the city, but numbers are significantly lower than when the so-called ‘Bangkok shutdown’ began five weeks ago.
The protesters are seeking to have caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra step down to make way for a “people’s council” to implement what they say are necessary reforms to fight corruption.
Over the weekend two grenades exploded at one of the remaining rally sites, injuring two people.
The Australian Government has urged travellers in Bangkok to stay away from protesters and rally sites.
