BANGKOK- A man identified by police as one of the leaders of anti-government protests in Thailand was shot dead on Sunday when violence erupted as demonstrators in Bangkok tried to block early voting for an election next week.

Piya Utayo, a spokesman for Thailand's national police, identified the dead man as Suthin Taratin. "At least five other people were injured," he said.

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has called elections for Feb. 2 in an attempt to defuse protests that have dragged on since November and which have flared occasionally into violence.
