Several people were hurt as anti-government protesters clashed with soldiers in the pre-dawn darkness Monday in the Thai capital, Bangkok. The confrontation was the first serious clash between the demonstrators and security forces since protests surged last week. Initial details were sketchy, but television footage of the scene showed injured people being taken away as soldiers in full combat gear secured the area at the Din Daeng intersection, where there is an on ramp to the main expressway leading north from the capital. The incident appeared to be an isolated one, taking place several kilometer away from the main encampment of thousands of protesters outside the prime minister's offices.
