BANGKOK — An Associated Press photographer has seen three foreign journalists shot during the army operation in Bangkok, and one of them appeared dead.

The photographer saw the three at a hospital Wednesday a few hours after the crackdown began to clear an anti-government protest site in central Bangkok.

He says one of the journalists, who looked Middle Eastern, was shot in the chest. His eyes were rolled back and he showed no signs of life.

He says a Dutch journalist walked into the hospital with a bullet wound in his shoulder. The third journalist is a Westerner in his late 40s who was shot in the leg.

The photographer also saw at least seven Thais brought to a hospital. It was not clear if they were dead or unconscious.
